If you love the taste of a sour, crunchy dill pickle; you are going to LOVE this Dill Pickle Dip Recipe. It is great on chips, veggies, pretzels, and crackers. Warning: You might want to double the recipe. It usually disappears in seconds.
I love, love, love a good pickle. Growing up as a child, I was one of those kids that preferred a dill pickle over candy. My mom would buy a jar of pickles and my greedy little self would eat the whole jar in just a few days. If we were traveling, I would beg her to buy me one of those enourmous pickles that were sold at the Quick Stops that came in a plastic pouch or in one of those big gigantic jars of pickles. When we ordered hamburgers at a restaurant, I would have to have extra, extra, extra pickles….
The saltiness, the sourness, the crunch…. Yum! I still love a good pickle. I also love chips and dip…. And so, it only made sense to combine two of some of my favorite things.
When I make this recipe, I have to double it. I put one batch out for my kids to destroy. It is usually gone in seconds. Then I put out my second batch when they leave the kitchen, ha! ha! I have to sneak it in so I can get a little also. It is AMAZING on some salty ridged potato chips. But if you are being good and healthy (as we all should be), it is also great on your favorite veggies.
This Dill Pickle Dip Recipe only takes a few minutes to make. When I am lucky, I have my Uncle Danny’s homemade pickles and I use them to make this recipe OVER THE TOP. No one makes pickles better than my Uncle Danny. So if you have some homemade pickles, I highly recommend using those. But if you don’t, be sure to use a really good sour brand. The dill pickles really mix well with the sour cream and cream cheese. Pucker up and Enjoy!!
