Check Out These 5 Ways to Recycle Your Leftover Pickle Juice

MeatNext time you grill up some steak, add the brine to your marinade. The acid in the juice helps break down the tough muscle fibers in the meat allowing the steak to come out more tender.
Salad DressingPickle brine juice works wonders in salad dressings. The brine acts as an acid, replacing vinegar and lemon juice in the typical dressing. However, don’t use that much at first as the juices can cause the dressing to break before it forms. If you do add too much, add in some fat to help even out the dressing.
Keep the juices in the pickle jar and throw in some vegetables or eggs for a quick pickle. The juices even sit well on their own for an extended period of time, so keep them in the fridge to cook with for later use.
Upgrade your condiments! Combine the juices with a thicker spread such as mayonnaise, sour cream, or silken tofu to create a new sandwich spread. Add in any spice to create your own customized blend.
