Dill Pickle Dip Tips
When making Dill Pickle dip, make sure to use full-fat sour cream. It needs to be thick, and lower fat options will result in watery dip.
This dip is best when made ahead of time. It thickens as it sits, so giving it ample resting time in the fridge is best. It also allows all the flavors and spice to mingle and make tasty friends.
It’s also best if the pickles are chopped finely. Larger pieces is good, but I’ve found this dip to be more popular when the pickles are chopped smaller. You can chop manually or if you have a food processor, the job with be done in record time.
You also have the option to swap out the sour cream for plain greek yogurt. Not only does it have the right texture and is a bit healthier, but it also has that tangy flavour which is perfect for this recipe.
I like to use fresh parsley and dill for my recipe, yet I have in the past, used dried seasoning which has turned out fine. I’ve also given this recipe a little special kick and have added a couple tablespoons of powdered ranch seasoning too. It’s a nice touch.
What do you serve with dill pickle dip?
Really, there’s so many options to go with this dip. We love fresh vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber and celery. Yet I always make sure to pair this dip with potato chips.
You can also serve this 5 minute Dill Pickle Dip with crackers, pretzels or even bread pieces such as a cut baguette.
