This dill dip recipe is so easy to make and you’ll love the bright herby citrus flavor from fresh dill. Paired with a hint of garlic and onion, it’s reminiscent of dill pickles but in a creamy sauce.
Simple Ingredient Veggie Dip
Yep, it’s easy to make with simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need (and a few substitution notes).
- Fresh Dill: the VIP of this recipe is fresh dill. The flavor that comes from this herb when it’s fresh is unbeatable. It’s one of those herbs that (for me) I forget how much I love it until I use it again, like in this herby potato salad.
- Garlic and Onion Powder & Dried Parsley: these dried spices and herbs make for a rounded, flavorful dip. They also give some Ranch flavor vibes. If you love fresh garlic, you can easily use a pressed clove instead of powder. I’ve done both in the testing process and decided it comes down to preferences as both work. Same with the parsley!
- Sour cream and Greek yogurt: a combination of the two for both creaminess and tang. The little bit of sour cream helps to thin out the sauce since the yogurt is thicker. Adjust each ratio to your preferences, as needed.
- Fresh Lemon Juice: adds a little acid and tang, as well as thins the sauce out. Try a splash of soy sauce or vinegar if you don’t have a fresh lemon.
- Salt and Pepper: to taste, these flavor enhancers go a long way!
The Easiest Dill Dip to Make
Truly, this dip is so easy to throw together and keep in the fridge for easy snacking!
The most involved step is finely chopping the dill. The more finely it’s chopped, the better incorporated it will be. If you want to skip the chopping, pulse it in a food processor. Just don’t pulse the entire dip recipe too much or it will thin out into more of a dressing consistency.
So that’s it, then simply mix together the ingredients! If you’re using fresh garlic, I recommend using a garlic press to make sure it’s fine enough to incorporate seamlessly throughout the dip.
Taste test and adjust salt levels, and add a few twists of freshly ground pepper if you want a little extra somethin’ somethin’.
A Variety of Ways to Enjoy
Of course, serve this dip alongside a variety of chopped veggies for a perfect match! Dill pairs really well with carrots and celery, but I’ve yet to find a vegetable that doesn’t work with this dip. Serve it on a platter with cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, and more.
Don’t stop at a vegetable dip though! Try one of these ideas:
- Spread it on a sandwich, whether it’s a classic cucumber tea sandwich or adding extra flavor to a vegetarian greens-loaded sandwich, this is a delicious addition!
- Potato Chips are a delicious pairing, too. The salty, crunchy chips work so well with the fresh herbs and creamy dip! Similarly, homemade crostini fits the bill, too!
- Dollop it over baked salmon or pair it with crispy potatoes. It’s also great with cooked veggies like roasted broccoli, Instant Pot steamed carrots, or a quick batch of air fryer asparagus.
