Recipe for Dill Dip

I remember as a kid, that my mom would make a veggie tray and dill dip for every holiday party.

That dill dip, for me, was pretty much the best part of the holidays, and I looked forward to it over and over again.

Eventually I brightened up and asked her for the recipe so I could make it myself between holidays, and boy, am I so glad I did! I even use it as salad dressing sometimes!

Turns out, this delicious, tangy dip is super easy to stir together, and has a bonus effect of making children eat more veggies. Plus you can use fresh dill straight from your garden.

If you like dill at all, you'll love this dip!

Recipe for Dill Dip

What You Need:

  • 1 teaspoon Dill Weed
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Onion
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise (You can use Homemade Mayo too!)

What to Do:

Stir all ingredients together until well blended.

For best results, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several hours before using, to let the flavors combine and kind of meld together.

*Just in case you weren't sure....dill weed is the part of the dill plant that looks like a fern and grows from the stalk, not from the top of the plant. This recipe uses dill weed instead of dill seed (the top of the plant) like you would use for canning pickles.

Serve with crudités, or chips, or veggies! If you have fresh things in your garden right now this dip would pair perfectly with sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, or carrots.

So, in the recipe, are the dill and parsley measurements for dried or fresh? This dip sounds great!

They’re for dry.

Looks delicious. I’d use it with veggies.

That looks wonderful! We LOVE dill and encouraging the kids to eat more veggies is always on the list!

I love veggies. Eat them all the time. No dip just as is. But I am going to have to try this. Looks so good. Going to substitute 2/3 with yogurt instead of mayo (cut the fat, calories and my body will be happier) love the recipes you post

hi just wondering what kind of onion did you use for the recipe

I found your recipe on Pinterest and was thrilled to find a recipe using fresh dill! I have a ton of fresh dill in my hydro-pod planter and nothing to use it in until now. I am going to try fresh parsley as well since I also have an abundance as well. Wish me luck!
