Dill Dip Recipe Ingredients
To make dill dip, you’ll need a few staple ingredients:
- Sour Cream – Full-fat sour cream makes for an ultra-creamy texture.
- Mayo – Use a high quality mayo for the best flavor. I prefer Hellmann’s olive oil mayo – or make your own homemade mayonnaise.
- Beau Monde Seasoning – This is the secret ingredient. Shhh! Buy it in store or learn how to make your own Beau Monde Seasoning.
- Dried Dill Weed – Dried dill seed can be substituted. A little note on that below.
- Dried Parsley – I really like the flavor profile of the dried parsley in this dip recipe, but you can also use fresh. You will need 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley to get the same pronounced flavor.
- 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.
- Try this dip with cream cheese to replace the sour cream for a thicker, richer flavor.
- Instead of mayo, sub with Greek yogurt.
- To substitute with fresh herbs, just triple the parsley, dill, and onion.
What is Beau Monde?
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive when I make this recipe is “What is Beau Monde?” I’ll be honest, if it weren’t for this dill dip, I’d be clueless as well. When I first started making this recipe, it was the only thing I used it for, but now I use Beau Monde often!
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, or you can make your own – recipe coming soon.
Should I Use Dill Weed or Dill Seed in my Beau Monde Dip?
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!

- In a mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients together using a spatula. Fold in herbs and spices.
- Refrigerate covered – preferably overnight to allow all of the flavors from the herbs and spices to marinate. It can be made up to three days in advance!
If you’re in a pinch, it can be ready to serve in just 30 minutes. This gives the dill veggie dip enough time for the flavors to meld together.

- Since this dip is made with sour cream and mayo, you can mix it up right out of the fridge when the ingredients are cold. However, allowing them to sit out for a bit to come closer to room temperature will always make your mixing easier.
