This dill pickle dip is one of the EASIEST home-made dip recipes I’ve ever tried! It’s so simple to make and it tastes amazing. If we’re being honest, I love dips. Salsa, guacamole, ranch, BBQ, sweet and sour – I LOVE THEM ALL! I especially enjoyed this one, and was surprised by how delicious it tasted with the chopped pickles. With the perfect mix of creamy, crunchy and tangy, this dill pickle dip was seriously tasty!
Potato chips are my weakness. I’m completely addicted to them! I had to stop buying them, because as soon as they’re in the house, I open the bag, and I can’t stop eating. Add in some amazing dill pickle chip dip and all the neurons in my brain start cheering MORE MORE MORE! I can’t help myself.
To be perfectly honest, I completely forgot to offer this dill pickle dip to my kids, so I can’t comment on how they liked it. (They probably wouldn’t have liked it anyway… I’ll just keep telling myself that…). My husband and I ate it with our lunch two days in a row, and I’m not going to lie, it was pretty much glorious. Chips for lunch. Chips for dinner. I’d be happy eating chips all. day. long.
One of my family’s favourite (simple) chip dips is sour cream and freshly chopped dill. Add some salt, mix them together, and it’s a delicious, fresh tasting chip dip. Last year I started adding mayonnaise to my chip dips – because let’s face it – mayonnaise pretty much makes everything taste better.
I saw a similar recipe for Dill Pickle Dip over at Wonky Wonderful which is basically the same chip dip I make, except with chopped pickles added. (Chopped pickles! Holy yum.) And I knew I had to try it!
This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and the best part is that you can eat it right away! If you don’t end up finishing it off in one sitting, it keeps well in the fridge for about 2 days.

How to Make Dill Pickle Dip:
This recipe is SO easy and only requires a few basic ingredients. It’s the perfect combination of creamy, crunchy and tangy!
I bought regular dill pickles, just from our grocery store’s generic brand. The jar said “Dill Pickles”. (The jar next to it said “Garlic Dill Pickles” – I didn’t choose the garlic ones).
Start by slicing and dicing your pickles! You want nice small chunks that you can pick up with the potato chips. They should be slightly larger than the chunks in relish.
Finely chop your dill. You can usually find fresh dill in the produce section of your grocery store. If you can’t find fresh dill, you can substitute it with dry dill, but I find that dry dill has almost no flavour, so I really recommend trying to find fresh dill.
If you have leftover dill, just pop it into the freezer. You can use kitchen scissors to cut frozen dill and easily add it to your salads. Dill will last in the freezer for over a month.
Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped dill, pickles, salt and onion powder in a bowl and mix everything together. Garnish the bowl of dip with some chopped pickles before serving – and you’re done!
That’s it! It was almost too easy wasn’t it?!
Your DILL-ICIOUS pickle dip is ready to serve right away. You can refrigerate it for a few hours if you want to, but I found the flavour was really good right after mixing it, so it’s definitely not necessary to wait before you eat it.
But if you need to make it a day ahead, go right ahead! It tasted good the day of, and it also tasted good the next day. So whatever works with your schedule!
