  1. Sounds interesting. I’ve never seen sweet and sour pickles though. Could it be substituted with normal pickles and sweet and sour sauce?

    Hi Maija,
    Thank you for your comment…Usually there are 2 sorts of pickles…one is sour..and use dill…usually called dill pickles- the other are sweet sour…or rather sweet..with also vinegar- those are the ones you want- or if you have piccalilli that would also work. It’s really a tasty dip. I hope you give it a try.

    THis is definitely not a RAW dip as it has pickled onions, sweet pickled, tabasco and possibly maple syrup, all of which are processed with heat….just sayin”!

    Thank you Lynda for your criticism. I will ask my husband to remove the word raw.
