DILL PICKLE DIP RECIPE
With just a few ingredients, you can have this dip ready to go in just a few minutes.
Ingredients (full recipe below)
- Cream cheese
- Dill pickles–Chop whole pickles for this dip; spears and rounds are a little too flimsy, but you could make them work if that is what you have on hand.
- Deli ham–You could also use dried beef, or leave the meat out altogether.
- Dry ranch seasoning–Store-bought, or you can make your own homemade dry ranch seasoning (but you will use a little less, about 2 tablespoons of homemade seasoning)
- Green onions
- More chopped pickles (optional, for garnish)
HOW TO MAKE DILL PICKLE DIP
It all starts with the softened cream cheese for this recipe. If you have forgotten to let the cream cheese sit out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, but are ready to make the dip, soften it in the microwave. Remove the wrapping from the block of cream cheese and warm it in the microwave in 15-second increments. You don’t want it melted, but just soft around the edges.
Once the cream cheese is softened and the dill pickles and deli ham have been chopped, simply place the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix everything together until the dip is creamy and well combined. Garnish with more chopped dill pickles. The chunky and thick texture of this dip is perfect for crackers, pita chips, vegetables, or other sturdy snack crackers.
HOW TO STORE DILL PICKLE DIP
If you have any leftover dip, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. This dip is great on burgers and sandwiches if you are out of crackers to dip into it. Enjoy!
