Ever since we posted our dill pickle pasta salad recipe, I’ve been into all things dill pickles. I made a traditional dill dip with fresh dill, but I wanted something that used actual dill pickles, too.

About this Dill Pickle Dip Recipe:

  • Flavor: The main flavor in this dip is…you guessed it…dill pickles! You’ll also taste the tanginess from the sour cream and savory from the garlic and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Texture: The base of the recipe is smooth, but there is texture in the dill pickles or relish that you put into the dip. It goes great with fresh vegetables and crackers that have a crunch.

Ingredients Needed

  • Sour cream. Full fat sour cream is best, but you can use low fat if you want to save calories.
  • Cream cheese. Full fat cream cheese at room temperature is best, but save calories by using low fat cream cheese.
  • Dill pickle relish. Many dill pickle dip recipes call for diced dill pickles. Makes sense, right? I took the easy route and used dill pickle relish, which is dill pickles already diced finely. I give the instructions for both dill relish and chopped pickles in the recipe card below.
  • Worcestershire sauce. This adds a deeper flavor to the dip.
  • Garlic. Because why not? I used minced garlic, but you can use ½ teaspoon garlic powder.
  • Fresh dill. Fresh dill makes the dip look pretty and adds to the dill flavor.

How to Make Dill Pickle Dip

This is about the easiest appetizer you can make. Simply mix the sour cream and cream cheese together in a medium bowl until smooth, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. That’s it!

Plan ahead for the best flavor

You’ll want the dip to chill for at least an hour before serving, but you can make this up 24 hours in advance to really let the flavors deepen.

Recipe Variations

  • Add diced onion or ½ teaspoon onion powder if you love onion flavor.
  • Save calories and substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream in the recipe.

Storage Instructions

Store this dill pickle dip in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Have leftovers? Just refrigerate any leftover dip. Don’t freeze.
