Pickle Juice Dressing

makes about 3 cups
Don’t throw it out! Turn that flavorful cucumber brine into a new dressing.

1/2 cup leftover pickle juice (with seasonings)
1 large local egg
2 cups grapeseed oil
1 tsp. salt

In a blender, combine pickle juice and egg; on high speed, slowly drizzle in oil and blend until smooth. Season with salt. Note: If raw egg is a concern, substitute 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise.
