While Salt & Straw is no stranger to obscure ice cream flavors, now the creamery is taking things to the next level with its new Dill Pickle Sorbet. Ideal for those who can't get enough of the tangy taste of pickle juice, the new dish is a unique take on two beloved foods.
Salt & Straw's new Dill Pickle Sorbet is a seasonal ice cream flavor that is available from the brand's Portland location. To make the frozen treat, Salt & Straw begins by juicing cucumbers and whipping up a simple syrup blended with fresh dill. These ingredients are then combined with xanthan gum and a little rice vinegar to create the creamy sorbet base. Customers can then enjoy the tangy treat on top of a cone, or served banana-split style with two pickle spears instead of fruit.
