Now that Spring has officially arrived I am craving fresh veggies, and mostly craving dill like I do every single year!

This dip is a staple spring and summer dip around our house.  I love how cool and creamy it is and sometimes we will just have it for lunch when the weather is really hot.

How to Make Dill Dip:

Dill dip is incredibly simple to make!  It takes about seven ingredients total and they are things that I almost always have around the house, and you probably do as well.

I like to use dried herbs for this dip most of the time.  That way, if you aren’t able to find fresh dill and parsley at the time, you can still make dill dip whenever you feel like it!  Dried dill weed and dried parsley are herbs that I always keep in my spice rack just in case!

The most important part of making this dip is to let it chill after mixing.  You can eat it right away if you are in a time pinch, but it tastes so much better if the flavors have at least 30 minutes to meld together.  This dip can be refrigerated for up to three days before serving if you want to make it ahead.

What is in Dill Dip?

Dill dip starts with a simple and classic combination of sour cream and mayonnaise.  If you prefer, the sour cream can be swapped out for plain Greek yogurt.  Next comes either fresh or dried dill, some dried or fresh parsley, dried minced onion, garlic powder, and just a pinch of salt.

These ingredients create a powerful flavor combination, and the dill really stands out!  Don’t skimp on the garlic powder, garlic and dill are best friends and taste amazing together!

My suggestion is to go very easy on the salt. I start with 1/8 teaspoon, which might not seem like much, but a little seems to go a long way.  After you have chilled this dip, give it a taste and add more seasonings to your liking.

What Foods go well with Dill Dip?

Homemade dill dip is the perfect combination to any veggie tray!  I haven’t found a vegetable that I don’t like this dip with, and it’s always a hit with a crowd.

Use a combination of your favorite vegetables.  We like cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and green onions.  It’s also great with celery and carrots!

Dill dip is great served with potato chips and bread as well.  I typically use ruffled plain potato chips since the dip is so flavorful on its own.  As far as bread, we really like to serve pumpernickel with this dip!  It’s also great with Hawaiian bread, either toasted or not, depending on what you like.

If you want this dip to be more of a meal, it is also really great served with chicken kabobs for dipping!

    My absolute favorite dill dip recipe! I’ve tried numerous recipes for dill dip and while most were pretty good, this one is hands down the BEST! (I didn’t list any store bought dips because they don’t even deserve to be considered as ‘dill dip’ with how awful the store bought versions taste! 😂)
