The Best Fried Pickle Dipping Sauce

Fried pickles are delicious on their own, but they’re even better with the right dipping sauce. A fried pickle dipping sauce should be creamy, tangy, tart, and ever so slightly spicy.

I always save the brine after straining the pickles when making fried pickles. The fermented pickle brine is the secret ingredient that makes this sauce special because it’s salty, umami, sour, and full of probiotics.

While you no longer get probiotics from pickles after you fry them, there will be many probiotics in the dipping sauce thanks to adding brine.

Making Fried Pickle Sauce

This is the easiest dipping sauce to prepare, and you will dirty very few dishes making it. You only need a glass mixing bowl, a whisk, and measuring cups/spoons.

Once you have all your ingredients gathered, measure everything into the bowl. Then whisk everything together until smooth. You can serve the sauce immediately or store it in the fridge covered.

Fried Pickle Dipping Sauce Ingredients

You only need six simple ingredients to make this delicious sauce. So here is everything you need:

Storing the Sauce

This sauce keeps in the fridge for about 3 weeks, but if you’re eating fried pickles, it probably won’t last that long.

After preparing the sauce, you can store the sauce in the fridge. First, scoop it into a small mason jar with an airtight lid. Then, secure the lid and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. It may last longer, but I suggest eating it within a few weeks since fermented ingredients are incorporated.
