I had heard so much about Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad I had to pick one up! And no, the above photo is not what comes in the package. Let me show you what does.
Wow, $6.49 for a salad but it is the dead of winter and I was desperate for greens and I LOVE dill pickles!
I opened the package and saw lots of greens, shredded cauliflower, kale, cabbage, raddishes… Um, where are the pickles?
The package also came with dill pickle seasoned brioche crouton crumbles which is a very cool idea but I started to get a bad feeling…
“Tossed in TANGY DILL PICKLE RANCH—packed with REAL chopped pickles…” You mean this thin little salad dressing package? Packed with chopped pickles? I don’t think so.
It was an interesting taste experience. The dill pickle flavour was there but with what we were promised, there should have been a package with pickles in it to make this an actual dill pickle salad.
Taking It To The Next Level
I still had half the bag left over so I made the rest for lunch and added REAL CHOPPED PICKLES, ham, pasta…
I give them foodie kudos for making a salad taste like a pickle salad with almost zero pickles but that is not what I wanted nor was it what they promised to deliver. For me this was a dill pickle salad fail. Especially when I paid almost $7.
If you want pickle salad without significant pickles you will probably like this product. Me? I felt like it was false advertising. Seriously, all they had to do was include a few pickles in a little bag like the crumb topping and I would have been thrilled.
I give this product two and a half out of five wooden spoons because they failed to deliver what they promised. That ranch dressing was NOT packed with real chopped pickles. Flavour wise I give it a four out of five if you know what you are getting into and are not left disappointed at the dearth of pickles.
