Dill Pickle Dip


Pickle Dip and Potato Chips

This is one of those recipes that I just had to try…out of sheer curiosity. I’d never heard of such a thing. Pickle dip? Odd but interesting. Quirky and tempting. Crunchy yet creamy. Tart and salty. I found this recipe over at CopyKat Recipes. Thanks so much Stephanie, this is a great dip. While taste testing to adjust flavors, I decided it needed more pickle, more pickle juice and a bit more onion. For no other reason other than I’m a pickle and onion freak-0.

I made this dip the morning we were heading over to Maralee and Greg’s for the big AFC Championship game that afternoon…let me pause here for a Go Broncos!…and it was delicious the same day. And just as the direction say, it’s better if it sits overnight.

I found a similar recipe over at the blog Smells Like Home, using Greek yogurt.

The Iowa Beef Council Industry thinks we ought to add dried beef to the recipe and serve it with vegetables. Sounds good to me.

I’m loving Sarah Sprague’s spiced up version using red pepper flakes.

And Recipes for Real Life even sells a packaged Dill Pickle Dip and suggests you can stir it into potato salad, pasta or deviled eggs or drizzle it on pizza.

However you mix it up, you’ll need a sturdy chip for dipping and elastic waist band pants for this one.

Dill Pickle Dip
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ C. sour cream
  • 2 T chopped white onion
  • 1 t. dried onion flakes
  • 4 T. chopped dill pickles
  • 2 t. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons pickle juice (optional) add if you like a little more tartness.
  1. Allow cream cheese to warm to room temperature to soften. In a medium sized mixing bowl mix together cream cheese and sour cream. Stir until well blended. Add in chopped white onion, chopped dill pickles, and Worcestershire sauce, and mix until you have a uniform mixture. You may add in 1 to 2 teaspoons of pickle juice if desired, it will give the dip a little extra zip. Store in an airtight container for at least 1 hour before serving. This is better when made the night before. Garnish with dill if desired.

Dill Pickle Dip…It’s what’s for Super Bowl.

    When ever I read and look at your fantastic recipes I always ask the question; Would Elway like this? Would those big beaver incisors be able to handle this pickle delight? I know I would love this dip. Good luck next weekend. It will be a cold one.

    Love how good this dip sounds. Even though I am not a huge football fan, I am always excited for an excuse to have an afternoon party full of food, friends and fun. Go Broncos!
