My daughter let me have some of this on a fishing trip and it was wonderful. Alas, I could not find it in any of our local stores so I made this up for me. This is not hot unless you add the hot peppers. I like it mild and love the taste of the dill.

    Add to a large bowl and mix. Add dill pickle juice and mix. Add spices and lemon juice and mix well.
  • Pickle salsa is good on corn chips, hot dogs or hamburgers.
    Put in a covered container and let sit over night to enhance flavors. Sometimes I just let it sit for a few hours and then grab the chips.
