Bread & Butter Pickle Pasta Salad

Lynn Socko


The sauce is the juice from the pickles. This brand of Zesty Bread & Butter pickles taste like a lightly sweet, mildly hot "chow chow", totally addicting, and this is coming from a person that would not eat pickles until I tasted Uncle Gary's. His products have a unique flavor that is just incredible. Any zesty bread and butter pickle will do, but make sure you like the product before you add it to the pasta.
