I love those crunchy treats with a hint of sour. The first time I tried fried pickles was in college. I have had them a few times since...(maybe more than a few) but try to avoid them. Until, I found an 'skinny' version. I am always trying to take a OMG LOVE IT, CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT, recipe and make it better for us. So when I found this recipe, well, you let me know what you think of it.
