Expert Tips

  • The dipping sauce can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
  • Try the sauce on a salad or sandwich, or use as a dip for French fries. Add crumbled blue cheese and you have an amazing blue cheese dip!
  • When shopping for pickles for this recipe, you might see some jars labeled “hamburger dill pickle chips”—those are what you want.
  • To tell if your oil is hot enough, and you don’t have a deep fry or candy thermometer, just dip the end of a wooden spoon into the oil. If small bubbles form around the spoon, the oil is ready for frying.
