Tips and Tricks

  • Drain chopped pickles: Once you chop the pickles, there will be some juice that comes out. Press down on the chopped pickles and drain off the juice that’s in the measuring cup. This is to ensure the dip isn’t too thin since we’ll be measuring liquid to add to the dip.
  • Spice it up! For a kick, you could use spicy dill pickles or add a pinch of cayenne or red pepper flakes.
  • Use fresh ingredients: The fresh dill, onion and garlic add a ton of flavor to this dip.
  • Make ahead instructions: Just assemble and store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Recipe FAQs

How long Dill Pickle Dip last?

This dip should last 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

What type of dill pickles do you use?

Dill pickle spears work well as they are easy to chop. I used 5 spears to get 1 cup of chopped pickles although this may vary by the size of your pickles. Any pickle brand will do.

What to serve with Dill Pickle Dip?

Ruffled potato chips are my favorite dipper. Veggies such as cucumbers, bell peppers, grate tomatoes or carrots, crackers and pretzels also work well.
