Dill Pickle Pasta Salad

What do you do with pickle juice after you are done eating the pickles.  Some will add it to their Bloody Caesar's.  But I don't drink those.  So here is my take on a pasta salad for those who like the brinyness (is that a word) of pickles.


  • 3 - 4 cups of cooked pasta
  • 3/4 cup sliced pickles
  • 2/3 cup mild cheddar cheese , diced
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced onion (i used red onion for colour)
  • 3 tbsp of finely diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup pickle juice 


  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 4 tablespoons pickle juice
  • salt & pepper to taste

Mix the dressing into the pasta and other ingredients one little bit at a time until it is properly coated.
