Classic, flavorful Dill Dip that’s always a crowd pleaser for holidays, game days and summer gatherings. This Dill Dip recipe is an easy make ahead appetizer you’ll make again and again!
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 Dill 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 easy Dill Dip is a great recipe for every occasion from summer get togethers, to game days and holidays.
Every time I make this 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! It’s a spice you’ll find at any grocery store.
What’s in this Dill Dip Recipe?
To make dill dip, you’ll need a few staple ingredients. It’s made a traditional blend of sour cream and mayo combined with dried herbs including beau monde, dried dill weed, dried parsley, and dried minced onion. If you’re really in a pinch you can use onion powder, but the minced onion gives it great texture and flavor.
So often, a shortcut isn’t really a shortcut. However, with this Dill Dip Recipe, one simple shortcut makes it stand above the rest.
Of course you can always use fresh herbs and spices, but that’s the beauty of this easy 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.
Should I Use Dill Weed or Dill Seed in this Dill Dip?
My mom and grandma always made this dill 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!
