Easy Dill Vegetable Dip

This dill dip reminds me of my childhood. It’s one that my grandmother always served when the family got together for the holidays and it made its way onto almost any veggie tray that came out of her kitchen.

Now, in the summertime, I love to enjoy dill veggie dip with garden-fresh vegetables. There’s nothing quite like some freshly picked cherry tomatoes or sliced bell peppers dipped into this! Though, of course, it’s just as good with pretzels or some classic ruffled potato chips.

The longer the dill dip sits, the better it gets as the flavors have time to marinate. So while this recipe takes just 5 minutes to pull together, I do recommend preparing it in advance. Keep in mind this recipe will serve a small crowd – so feel free to halve it if necessary.

Key Ingredients

This dill veggie dip requires just a handful of ingredients.

  • Sour cream – Gives the dip a tangy flavor.
  • Mayonnaise – Creates the creamy texture.
  • Herbs & seasonings – The flavors in this dip come from dill weed, minced onion, garlic powder, and salt.

Should I Use Dried or Fresh Dill?

I like to use dried dill weed – and that’s what I used for this recipe – but when it’s in season, fresh dill weed will work as well.

How to Make Dill Dip

There are just 2 steps to making this easy vegetable dip.

  • Combine the ingredients. Whisk together all ingredients until well combined.
  • Refrigerate. Chill for at least an hour or up to 24 hours before serving in an airtight container.

Can I Make This Dip Healthier?

For a lighter dill dip, swap out the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt and the mayonnaise for your favorite light mayonnaise. The Greek yogurt will still provide the tangy flavor while adding a bit of protein too.

Tip: Refrigerate Overnight

For the absolute best flavor, prepare this easy dip recipe the night before you need it. It gives extra time for the flavors to blend and really infuses the mayo and sour cream with the herbs.

If you can’t prepare it a full day in advance, no worries. It will still taste great after an hour or two.

What To Serve With Dill Dip

Presentation-wise, I like to serve dill dip in a bread bowl. I just take a round loaf of sourdough bread, hollow out the center to create a “bowl”, and fill it with the dip. Then I cut the center into pieces to use as a dipper!

Besides bread, here are a few other dipper ideas:

  • Cauliflower & broccoli
  • Bell peppers
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Salty crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Plain chips

Can I Make This in Advance?

Dill dip is best when enjoyed within 3 days. It can be stored longer but it does tend to get a bit watery after a period of time. You can drain the water or whisk it back in and it should still be fine.

Store in an airtight container with a lid.
