Pickle Wraps. A recipe reprise from the 1980s that is delicious and pretty on a plate. It will pop in your mouth with its creamy, crunchy, tangy flavor.
PICKLE WRAPS are a bit messy to make, but easy enough for the kids to help.
One of our family favorites is a vintage recipe, Pickle Wraps. With the holidays almost here, I’m reposting a few favorite appetizers. These Pickle Wraps are delicious and pretty on the plate. Make them and you will see that your guests will hover over them.
The combination of the tangy pickle with the smooth cream cheese and touch of meat is almost addictive. I always try to use whole Claussen Dill Pickles (found in the dairy case) because they are crisp, crunchy and tangy. They really are the best dill pickle out there.
The cream cheese bumps up the calories and fat, but if you don’t eat too many, you can stay on your diet. Don’t worry. They will be gone in no time and you will only get a couple of them!
What You Need
The most important ingredient is a good, crisp pickle, like the kind you get in the dairy case (Claussen). You also need a sharp knife or an electric knife (which is what I use). But what you really want is a terrific serving plate (affiliate link) and some beautiful beverage glasses (affiliate link), right?
