Here at The Santa Barbara Company, we have developed a bit of a passion for the pickles from Pacific Pickle Works. We have friends and family stopping by, marching into the kitchen and opening our refrigerator in search of them. We leave them on the counter to snack on while we cook. Since they have so few calories, they are the perfect quick, wholesome and refreshing appetizer. And we like to keep them on hand as an impromptu housewarming gift. They are fabulous alongside some spiced nuts, Ojai Olive Oil or a bottle of wine.
