Onboard Holland America Line

Southern Snacking

Now you’re ready to have a bona fide Southern spread at your next party. We showed you how to make tender, fluffy buttermilk biscuits the easy way: drop biscuits. After you brush some butter on the finished biscuits, you won’t need to add anything else, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t slather them with some creamy, tangy pimento cheese. You learned that shatteringly crisp fried pickles are within your grasp, especially if you whip up some fresh ranch dressing for dipping.

Fried Pickles with Ranch Dressing

These pickles are perfect dipped in ranch dressing and served with a cold drink.
