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 not only one of the easiest appetizers you can make, but it can also be made in advance, which makes it even more appealing. My mom always whipped it up the night before Thanksgiving and Christmas in just 5 minutes – it never occurred to me that there would even be a mix for something this easy. So often, a shortcut isn’t really a shortcut and for me, a dill dip mix could never be as good the real thing. One dip and I know that you’ll agree. My sister and I were just talking about how every time we make it we’re asked for the recipe and almost every time we share the recipe they’ll ask what Beau Monde is. 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! It’s a spice you’ll find at any grocery store. From our home to yours, enjoy!
Both my mom and grandma made this dip, but I always remembered it varied slightly depending on who was whipping it up that evening – mom used dill weed, grandma used dill seed. I prefer dill weed myself, but dill seed adds a little extra texture.
