Pickle Juice Vinaigrette
Gut health is key to overall health, and we now know that healthy microflora keeps us healthy. Fermented foods like pickles and sauerkraut are good for us because they have beneficial bacteria called probiotics. I like to use pickle juice to make this delicious and zesty salad dressing, and that way I get more mileage out of a jar of pickles. It tastes great on salads topped with avocado. Just be sure to use refrigerated pickles or sauerkraut, not the ones on the shelve in the middle of the store those are not fermented and do not contain probiotics.
