WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Fried pickles are really great for your taste buds, but the breading and frying they require make them not so great for your body. Instead of breadcrumbs, we coat the hydrating, fiber-filled cukes with almond flour and add antioxidant-rich spices like cayenne pepper; then we bake ’em. The result is a crunchy, salty, satisfying snack.
