Skewers of pickled gherkins, onions, olives, red peppers, and guindilla peppers, banderillas like these are found in just about every pintxo bar in San Sebastián and throughout Spain. Serve them straight out of the jar for a quick, authentic pintxo with no preparation necessary. Pairs well with cold, lager beer.
In Spain, pickled vegetables, such as gherkins, pearl onions, and olives, are everywhere, from homes to restaurants, from traditional recipes to avant-garde cuisine. The sour, salty, and sweet vegetables vary from region to region, but their tradition is one shared by all. In markets across the country you’ll find tiendas de variantes, stalls with a vast selection of pickled ingredients to be combined on skewers for a seemingly endless combination of banderillas.
While these banderillas pair well with beer, another option is one of the sherries from Jerez. The fortified wines have a dryness and body that aren’t overpowered by the strength of the vinegar. Or, add a skewer or two to finish your favorite Bloody Mary recipe and impress all of your friends.
