Sweet pickles are gross, but I bet candied jalapenos would be awesome in potato salad...

I like some finely chopped dill pickle in my potato salad sometimes, but usually leave it out. What's really good is minced dill pickle in macaroni salad.

couldn't help myself! Oh, and I cannot stomach bread and butter pickles.
I knew the OP mentioned sweet. But, wanted to help closely match their memory...even though I was cringing.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll give them a try. BTW, grits with lots of butter and cheese, definitely.
Yes, but adding the brine wasn't really my idea.

Potato salad is good with cheddar cheese and cubed ham as well, a packet of sazon, and Montreal Chicken seasoning. No pickles.

But I'll put sweet or dill pickles on my grilled cheese sandwich with mustard, thank you.
