Easy and Delicious Dill Pickle Dip Recipe

As someone who loves easy and delicious dips, I am SO excited to share this recipe with you. This dip only has 6 ingredients and comes together in minutes to create the most amazing zesty, creamy flavor! Because of this, it is always requested at family parties and is gobbled up in no time. The tangy flavor pairs so well with chips, crackers, fresh veggies, you name it! Even my family members who don’t like pickles have become a believer after trying this pickle dip.

Dill pickle dip is the perfect, easy dish for potlucks and game days. Additionally, it is so easy to make and just as easy to store and take on the go! That being said, my personal favorite way to enjoy this insanely good dip is for a Netflix binge night. Like binging your new favorite show, resisting another bite of this flavorful, addictive dill pickle dip is impossible. It is the perfect addition to your easy-to-make snack arsenal!

What You Need For Pickle Dip

With only a handful of simple ingredients, this pickle dip is an easy and inexpensive treat to throw together! It is also easy to customize flavors and substitute ingredients to your liking. I have all individual measurements listed in the recipe card below.

  • Cream Cheese: This is the creamy base of the dill pickle dip. Having your cream cheese at room temperature helps everything to mix together well! Also, a dairy-free variation of this dip can be made with cream cheese like Miyoko’s or Daiya.
  • Sour Cream: Sour cream adds a smooth texture and tangy flavor to your dill pickle dip. Greek yogurt works as a great substitute, too!
  • Chopped Dill Pickles: Small whole dill pickles, finely chopped, are what I like to use in this recipe! You can adjust the size of your dill pieces to your liking.
  • Garlic Powder: Adds a boost of flavor to your dip. Using fresh garlic is another way to achieve this.
  • Dill Weed: Used to add fresh, zesty flavor to your dip and also a hint of texture.
  • Dill Pickle Juice: Dill pickle juice will add additional flavor to your dip. It can also be used to make your dill pickle dip thinner until you reach your desired consistency!

How to Make the Best Dill Pickle Dip

This dip is rich and tasty with minimal effort. As a result, no one will suspect you made it minutes before the party with how much scrumptious flavor is loaded in each bite! You can even use your extra time to make homemade chips to really impress your guests.

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a medium size combine the cream cheese, sour cream, chopped dill pickles, garlic powder, dill weed, and pickle juice until incorporated.
  2. Serve or Chill: Serve immediately or chill for an hour to let the flavors blend and cheese to thicken.

Making the Best Dill Pickle Dip

Dill pickle dip can easily be customized to suit your tastes. So, whether you want to add more flavors or change up texture, you can use these easy tips to craft the best dip possible!

  • Different Pickles: Any kind of pickle will work here, use your favorite! You could try using hot pickles to add a little heat to your dill pickle dip!
  • Flavor Enhancers: Adding diced onion or onion powder to your dip gives it a pop of savory flavor. Jalapeños, a dash of Chili powder or paprika can add great flavor, as well. A little heat plays perfectly with the zesty flavor of dill.
  • Convert to Cheese Ball: Want dill pickle dip but in cheese ball form? No problem! Easily convert your dip into a cheese ball by placing mixture onto plastic wrap and gently shaping it into a ball. Next, refrigerate for at least an hour or until it is set in place. It is then ready to be transferred to a serving dish.
  • Dip Too Thick: If your dill pickle dip becomes too thick, add a spoonful of pickle juice at a time until you get the consistency you are looking for. Also, keep in mind that this dip will become thicker while resting in the refrigerator. If you’re making it in advance, you may need to add a splash of pickle juice to your dip before serving.
  • Serve With: Serve your dill pickle dip up with crackers, chips, veggies or pita. Zucchini chips are a tasty, healthy snack that also pairs wonderfully with dill pickle dip! Also, you can use this as a spread for sliders and sandwiches for a zesty pop of flavor!

Storing Leftover Dill Pickle Dip

My favorite part about dips is that they are so incredibly easy to store! You can eat them straight from the Tupperware container which makes them the ultimate anytime snack.

  • In the Refrigerator: Store your dill pickle dip in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
  • In the Freezer: This dip will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months in an airtight container. Thaw in the fridge before serving.

Homemade Italian Dressing

This simple homemade Italian Dressing is a zesty mix of flavorful herbs, savory Parmesan, and bright lemon to complement any salad. The post Homemade Italian Dressing appeared first on Budget Bytes.

Homemade Italian Dressing

I love making simple homemade vinaigrettes, and this classic Italian dressing has been a favorite lately. This dressing is similar to the bottled “Italian dressing” that you’d find in the grocer store, except made with simple ingredients that you’ll find in your fridge and pantry. It’s the perfect mix of bright lemon and vinegar, flavorful herbs, and savory Parmesan to take your homemade salads up to the next level.

What’s in Italian Dressing?

This all-purpose homemade dressing is a simple vinaigrette base packed with dried herbs and Parmesan. The base is olive oil and red wine vinegar, plus a little lemon juice to freshen things up and Dijon mustard to help emulsify the vinegar into the oil. I added a hefty dose of herbs, in the way of an Italian seasoning blend for convenience, plus a little garlic, and a touch of sugar to soften the acid every so slightly. Lastly, grated Parmesan adds so much umami and depth of flavor that it will make you want to eat the dressing by the spoonful!

Can I Skip the Sugar?

Technically you can skip the sugar if you really have to, but even that small dose of sugar goes a long way toward creating a really smooth dressing and reducing any bitterness, so I don’t suggest skipping it if at all possible. It’s only ½ tsp for the entire batch, so the dose per serving is extremely small.

Can I Skip the Parmesan?

Yes. This still makes a really stellar vinaigrette even without the Parmesan. I will say that the Parmesan totally takes the dressing to the next level, but I find plain vinaigrettes quite enjoyable on their own as well. So if you want to make a vegan dressing or just don’t have Parmesan on hand, don’t let it hold you back from making this homemade dressing.

How to Store Levtover Italian Dressing

Store your leftover dressing in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for about a week. The olive oil may solidify when the dressing gets very cold but will liquify again if set out at room temperature for 5-10 minutes.

How to Serve Italian Dressing

The flavors in this simple dressing are so universal that it will taste good on just about any salad. But it’s also great on pasta salad, on a simple sliced tomato and mozzarella salad, or even as a marinade for chicken! I think this dressing would also be amazing soaked into a crusty piece of bread as part of a pressed deli sandwich. YES!
