How to Make Dill Pickle Dip

  1. Combine ingredients - Mix up all of your ingredients in a bowl to an even consistency.
  2. Refrigerate - Cover the dip and let it chill in the fridge for one hour.
  3. Serve - Serve the dip with some of your favorite vegetables and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • Storage - Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. I don’t suggest freezing this recipe as it doesn’t seem to thaw well. 
  • Reheating - This dip is meant to be served chilled. Therefore, when pulling from the fridge, simply give it a quick stir and serve it up! 
  • Make it spicy - Want a little kick added to this recipe for dill pickle dip? Add a teaspoon of paprika to the mixture, or dice up some pickled jalapenos and add fold them in. 
  • Can I use chilled cream cheese? - If you try to use cream cheese straight from the fridge, you’re going to kick yourself. It’s impossible to effectively mix the ingredients into the cream cheese because it won’t be stirrable. I suggest using room temperature cream cheese and then chilling the dip for around 20 minutes before serving.
  • Add chicken - If you want to “beef” up your dip with some protein, add in some cooked, shredded chicken. 
  • Use sour cream - To reduce the taste of cream cheese and mayo, you can remove a bit of both and replace what you removed with sour cream. This gives it a little bit of a lighter taste and is delicious.

Common Questions About Dill Pickle Dip

Where to Buy Dill Pickle Dip?

Several brands have their take on pickle dip readily available in most grocery stores. For example, Heluva brand dips are some of the most sought after and they have a delicious pickle dip. However, this recipe is very simple to make on your own, is more cost effective, and my recipe is keto to boot.

It is great to enjoy a homemade dish without preservatives and other additives getting in the way. Further, pickle dip isn’t a super popular commodity right now, so it’s not as easy to find as most dips. That only makes this recipe even better, am I right? 

How Long is a Dill Pickle Dip Good for?

As long as the dip is refrigerated and kept sealed, you should have no problem getting at least a week to ten days out of it. However, like all things made with dairy, moisture will eventually lead to molding. Luckily, it is easy to spot and even easier to smell so you don’t end up consuming spoiled food.

Try to keep pieces of food out of the dip and protect it from moisture accumulating inside of it. This is avoided by not dipping foods directly into the entire batch of dip and covering the recipe for storage properly. If not properly sealed, moisture will build up and cause it to spoil more quickly.
