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.
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.
