Pickle & Olive Ovens - How To Make Them At Home
Pickle & Olive Forks is a fun way to add variety and color to your salads. For most people, there is either limited or no time in their day to prepare traditional food such as sandwiches. By using Pickle & Olive Forks, you can make authentic-tasting bread that can be used for sandwiches all day long!
To prepare, simply combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, white vinegar, and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Once combined, let stand about 10 minutes until the mayonnaise sticks to the ingredients. Then cut into small pieces. Place the pieces on a plate and serve with crackers.
For added flavor, you can add fresh herbs such as dill, tarragon, or oregano. Be careful not to overdo it--substitute about 2 tablespoons of vinegar for the oil and vinegar mixture. You may also want to try different varieties of beans such as refried beans. If you add a little extra oregano it will enhance the taste.
Store your Pickle & Olive Forks in a cool, dry area. They should last for up to two weeks if stored properly. The longer you store them, the better they will keep their flavors. Some people like to eat the mayonnaise on cold bread before they use it. If that is the case, it's best to use that only once or twice during the week.
To use your Pickle & Olive Forks, break or grate the bread into fine bits. The smaller the pieces, the better. Then, spoon some olive or pickle dressing onto the bread. Use your fingers to spread the dressing over the bread and then use your fork to fill up the gaps in the pickle and cheese. Place the bread on a cookie sheet and pop into the oven to cook for approximately one hour.
Once done, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool slightly. Unwrap it and cut it into thin pieces. It will be easier to spoon the mixture onto your salad if you do this on a flat surface. Pickle & Olive Forks will be even more appealing when you serve them warm from the refrigerator.
You can use this recipe several times throughout the summer. You could make small batches and give them out as gifts for family reunions or barbeques. You can also make a larger batch and freeze them ahead of time. When you have time, you can thaw them and enjoy a delicious sandwich made with these bread sticks.

This requires a little more work, but you can create a delicious dish using only salt & pepper. First, you will need to purchase or make some brine. Brine is simply salty water. You can find brine in a variety of flavors such as lemon, mustard, garlic and others.
You will also need white vinegar, salt & pepper and mustard seeds. You can choose to make your own pickles by purchasing them at your local supermarket, but most people prefer to make their own.

Place the pickled veggies in a pot and add the vinegar, salt & pepper to the mix. Bring the pickle mixture to a boil and then cover the pot for about an hour.
