Veggies are great on their own, but they’re even better when paired with a creamy dip. You can whip up this dill dip in no time with items that you probably already have in your kitchen.

Bowls of ingredients including sour cream, mayonnaise and dried herbs and spices.

How Do You Make Dill Dip?

Make dill dip by placing all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Stir to combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, herbs and spices. Serve the dip immediately, or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for later use.

Tips For The Perfect Dip

  • I use dried herbs because I always have them in the pantry, but fresh herbs will also work well. If you use fresh herbs, I still recommend going with the minced dried onion, as fresh onion may have too strong of a flavor.
  • Looking to save a few calories? You can easily substitute low fat sour cream and mayonnaise instead of the full fat variety.
  • Check the expiration date on your bottles of herbs before you make this dill dip! While dried herbs last for a very long time, they do eventually lose potency. I always go through my spice cabinet once a year to toss out bottles of herbs that have expired and no longer taste fresh.
  • Serve your dill dip with potato chips, pita chips, crackers, baguette slices or pretzels.

Quick Tip

Try fresh vegetables with this dip like carrots, celery sticks, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower or broccoli.

Recipe FAQs

What is the conversion of dried herbs to fresh?

I wrote this dill dip recipe for dried herbs, but if you prefer to use fresh, you’ll want to use three times the amount of the dried herbs called for. For example, if the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of dried parsley, use 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley. Fresh herbs are not as potent as dried herbs which is why you’ll need to use more of them to get the same flavor.

What is dill dip made of?

Dill dip is made with a creamy base of sour cream and mayonnaise, along with plenty of dried herbs, including a generous amount of dried dill.

How long does dill dip last in the fridge?

Dill dip will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store it in an airtight container for best results.

Can you freeze dill dip?

I don’t recommend freezing this dip, as it may separate when thawed.

Flavor Variations

While this dip is fabulous as-is, you can add other ingredients to customize the flavors to your tastes.

  • Cheese: Feel free to stir in 1/2 cup of grated cheese such as sharp white cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese or Swiss cheese.
  • Add-Ins: Amp up the flavor by adding seasonings. You can add garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, taco seasoning, fresh chives, hot sauce, chopped olives, sun dried tomatoes or even finely grated carrots.
  • Toppings: Feel free to add toppings to your dip. Sprinkle on cooked crumbled bacon, toasted pine nuts, smoked paprika, diced fresh tomato or drizzle on a little good olive oil.
  • Greek Yogurt: You can substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. If your dip is too thick, simply add a little more sour cream until you reach your desired consistency.

I like to garnish my dill dip with a sprinkling of either fresh or dried dill. Whatever you have on hand works just fine. Whenever I bring this recipe to parties, it’s devoured immediately!

    I love creamy dips and this one sure hit the spot. I had everything on hand already too! Can’t wait to make it again in the spring when I have fresh dill in my garden.

  2. 5 stars
    YOOOOOOO. This is so good. I used fresh dill and parsley that I grow. And I love onion so I finely chopped up a quarter of a fresh white onion instead of using dried and OMG. This SLAPS.

  3. There is a brand called Accent. FFT (food for thought) Don’t use dill seed instead of dill weed. Some recipes call for either but I don’t think the seed is right for this dip.
