Dill veggie dip has always been one of my favorite appetizers. Fresh dill has such a mild but unique flavor and adds such a coolness to this delicious recipe.

This Creamy Dill Dip is a mix of both mayonnaise and sour cream. It has the perfect smoothness with just a hint of tang. It pairs perfectly not just with any vegetable, but also with chips, cheeses, crackers, breads…and as a dipping sauce for salmon or chicken.

What is beau monde seasoning?

Beau Monde seasoning is a mix of seasonings from the Spice Islands brand. It is a mix of celery, onion and salt, plus a touch of sweetness. It’s great in many kinds of vegetable dips, in rubs for roasted meats and many other savory dishes. Can’t find it? Make your own.
