One of my favorite appetizers in Birmingham is the fried pickles at MELT served with jalapeño ranch. The pickles are juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They are a must try.

This combination is for serious pickle lovers. Cool off with a cup of dill pickle flavored “soft ice shaved twice.” Look for the NOLA Ice bright yellow truck rolling around town at many events near Downtown and Southside—plus the sno-balls can be purchased at Broad Street Peaux Boys + NOLA Ice in The Pizitz Food Hall.
