Tangy Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Mayo
  • 1 TBSP Ketchup
  • 1/8 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1-2 shakes Hot Sauce


  • Heat Vegetable oil in a pan to 350-375 degrees F.
  • You will need three bowls. In the first bowl place cornstarch and season it with 1 tsp Chili powder.
  • In the second bowl, you will need to whisk together 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. I added a couple of dashes of hot sauce for flavor.
  • In the third bowl, mix 1-2 cups of cornmeal, 1/4 tsp dill, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, and 1tsp chili powder. Add a pinch of pepper too. :)
  • Dip the pickle chips in the cornstarch mix shaking off the excess.
  • Then in the Egg wash, finally coating them with the cornmeal mix.
  • Drop the pickles into the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels
