Uses for watermelon rind pickles

I have 2 watermelons from my csa sitting in my kitchen. I plan to make watermelon rind jam with the rind of one and I saw this recipe ( for watermelon rind pickles. What can I use watermelon rind pickles for? Sandwiches? Salads?

Just had my mom's watermelon pickles alongside a rich Christmas dinner with Savour's Roasted Lamb with Pomegranate and my Vegetarian Festivus Pie. Also served a mostarda di uva, another sweet sour pickle. The pickles I made last year were all gone at the end of dinner from my mom's cut glass picle dish that she got for her wedding.

They're a great addition to cabbage slaw, and I even sneak them into stir fries. But I love them so much I just eat them like candy. Set them out on the table at dinner and watch them disappear.

I second the fish tacos and would add any tacos especially something like a pulled pork taco. I would also add maybe a dark leafy salad with some creamy gooey cheese, like brie or gorgonzola with something sweet like cranberries or apple and your rind pickles! Or you could make a really interesting riff on bruschetta with again a soft creamy cheese, some chopped sundried tomatoes, cilantro, toasted almonds and your rind! You could seriously do a lot of fun and crazy things with those rinds, just let your imagination run wild.=!

Ceviche? Salad? Homemade tartar sauce? Cocktails? Charcuterie or antipasti display? Skewered on a kebab, alternating with the protein of your choice?
