It’s not a holiday in our family without dill dip. It’s been a favorite of mine since childhood! In fact, long before my palate expanded, it was my Thanksgiving dinner.
It is one of the easiest appetizers you can make and can also be made in advance. That makes this tasty dip recipe even more appealing! My mom always made Dill Veggie Dip the evening before Thanksgiving and Christmas in just 5 minutes. It’s a nice way to save time during the holidays!
This simple dip is a great recipe for every occasion from summer get-togethers, to game days and holidays.
Every time I make this easy dip, everyone asks for the recipe! It’s always a crowd-pleaser.
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is “What is Beau Monde?” I’ll be honest, if it weren’t for this dill dip, I’d be clueless as well. It’s the only recipe I use it for, but it’s soooo worth it!
Dill Dip Recipe Ingredients
To make dill dip, you’ll need a few staple ingredients:
Dried Dill Weed
Dried Minced Onion
Tip: If you’re really in a pinch, you can use Onion Powder, but the minced onion gives it great texture and flavor.
What exactly is Beau Monde?
I asked myself the same question when I first started making this dip recipe with dill. The classic beau monde seasoning is a simple mix of salt, onion powder, and celery powder. It adds that extra special savory flavor. Spice Islands makes a beautiful blend you can find in the grocery store.
Of course, you can always use fresh herbs and spices, but that’s the beauty of this easy dip recipe. You have everything you need in your spice cabinet. To substitute fresh herbs in this dill dip recipe, triple the amount. For example, 2 tsp of dried dill weed equates to 2 Tbsp of fresh dill weed.
Fresh herbs are not as strong as dried herbs, so it requires more to get that same great flavor in this incredible dill veggie dip recipe.
Should I Use Dill Weed or Dill Seed?
My mom and grandma always made this dip recipe for the holidays. My mom used dill weed and grandma used dill seed – both offer great flavor, it just comes down to preference. I prefer dill weed, but dill seed adds a little extra texture. It’s truly your choice!
