How To Make Disneyland's Carnation Café Fried Pickles

We love Carnation Café! Located right on Main Street, U.S.A at Disneyland park, Carnation Café has been serving up their signature deep-fried bites of tart, salty, crunchy pickles since 2012.

Check out our fried pickle recipe below – we also included our delicious house-made zesty dipping sauce. This just may be your new favorite!
