Cucumber Dip Recipe {KETO}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our read the Privacy Policy

This cucumber dip is so addicting, it rivals my crack corn dip. A truly cant just dip one time dip, this dip based with sour cream and mayo keeps you keto clean as a dip or a spread.

And while this dip is so perfect for slices of cucumbers or even fried zucchini, its just as good as chip dip too! Dill-icious! 

Cucumber Dip being stirred by wooden spoon in a glass bowl, ready to serve with sour cream and mayo for the absolutely most perfect and quick dipping sauce

 

This cucumber dip is primarily made from dairy and therefore this recipe is fine to eat on a Keto Friendly or Low Carb diet.

Pair with delicious veggies (cucumbers are the best!), to really have an addicting snack or low carb lunch.

If you are looking for a dip that is made FROM cucumbers, like a traditional Tzatziki sauce, this dip isn’t exactly that. It does contain similar ingredients, but leaves out the diced cucumbers themselves. Instead, enjoy this dip by dunking thinly sliced cucumbers in the creamy mayo and sour cream combo, spiced perfectly and is finger licking delicious.

Other great ways to pair this dip are: 

  • Raw Vegetables like Broccoli, Carrots, Celery, Cauliflower, Red Pepper Slices
  • Chips, Crackers, Pretzels
  • Pickles and Olives (on a toothpick)
  • Plus try on a sandwich or tortilla wrap as a spread!

Keto Cucumber Dipping Sauce

Important timing note about this recipe:

This 5 minute dipping sauce is so easy to make but should be made ahead to allow the minced onion time to soften in the mixture. If you want to eat this dip right away, either omit the minced onion (which come out as harder pieces initially) or cut up tiny fine pieces of fresh onion in its place. 

Minced onion itself is typically dried and leaving in the creamy sauce for a little bit of time will soften up the flavors once given some time to marinate and combine properly.

Cucumber Dip with Sour Cream and Dill


Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Keto Friendly and low carb cucumber dip combines sour cream and mayo for a perfect slightly tangy, slightly sweet blend. SO good with vegetable sticks and slices of cucumber, chances are there will be no dip left!

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup Hellman’s Mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 th tsp Lawry’s seasoning salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 cup whole fat sour cream
  • 1/8 th tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley

Instructions

  • Keto Cucumber Dipping Sauce
  • In a bowl, add and mix up Hellmann’s mayo, dried dill, Lawry’s seasoning salt, dried minced onion, full fat sour cream, cracked pepper, and dried parsley. 
  • Once dip is thoroughly mixed, put in fridge overnight so flavors can combine and meld together. This also allows the minced onion to soften in the dip.
  • Mix well just prior to serving.
  • If you want to serve same day, you have to omit dried onion (or understand it will have a little crunch) and use either onion powder or real minced onions in its place for the flavor.

    Looks delicious. My grandkids can make this with me for snack time.
    Elizabeth 😎

  2. Just made this and it is amazing! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Its my favorite dip recipe too! Thanks for coming back to tell me you enjoyed it. <3

    2. Cheryl Wilson says:

      what happens if you leave out the sour creme? I don’t care for yogurt either

    3. hi cheryl, I havent made it without a combo, but try increasing the hellmanns without the sour cream and then maybe add a bit of whole cream to thin it out.

  3. A great quick cucumber quick dip is 1/2 cup sour cream add 1 tbs lemon juice, lemon peppet to tadte. Done! This dip is also delicious with chicken strips!

    1. That sounds like a great variation Janice, thanks so much for sharing!

  4. Very similar to our favorite veggie dip. We use Beau Monde seasoning instead of Lawry’s seasoned salt and do not use the pepper or onion. I’ll have to experiment, now…

    1. Ill have to look for Beau Monde seasoning. I haven’t tried it!

    2. The dried onion makes this dip scream!!
      So good and I’ve never thought of putting a chip in it.
      Thank you so much for sharing. It’s one of our favorites!

    3. My sister lives next to a small mart that closed called the Beau Mart. It made a dip called Beau dip and you guessed it, it was made with Beau Monde seasoning. Everyone loved it. Thank God her daughter got the recipe for the dip before it closed and we all enjoy it still today.

  5. Sandi Hodge says:

    Ive been eating this dip since I was a little girl.
    I’m 61 and still make this all the time, My Family eats the dip with chopped vegetables, All Vegetables !
    Try also with crackers, hardtack, and even try Orange and Apple slices.

    1. Ooh, I never thought about trying it with fruit!

  6. Would I be able to use onion powder if I wanted to be able to have the dip right away? Thanks so much!

    1. I think that’s a really great compromise for instant eating. I haven’t made it that way, but Id start out with a tsp of onion powder, mix and test it out for flavor adjustments.

    2. Erin Sokolowski says:

      Just whipped this up to have with a veggie plate at dinner tonight. I was out of minced onion so I used 2 Tbsp fine diced white onion and a dash of onion powder. Its delicious!!!! And it took 5 mins to mix up!
      Ill absolutely be making this again.

  7. Lori Willis says:

    I don’t really care for anything with a mayonaisseey taste but would like to try this. Any ideas on what to sub or how to change?

    1. what about a unflavored yogurt? I havent tried it but it has a good consistency. Like a greek yogurt unflavored?

    2. I make this dip all the time..it’s addictive. I just use sour cream. I add more dill, maybe a couple more teaspoons. Onion powder instead of minced. You can even use more Lawreys…just a little at a time. This can be made according to taste. Good luck.
      Sandy

  8. This is my fave dip of all time, except we too, use the Beau Monde instead of Lawry’s. If mom doesn’t make this, I tend to whine! I’m 53 years old, I can make my own! But he’s is made with LOVE!

  9. This sounds like it will be a tasty dip but the NAME is extremely misleading. I read and read and watched the video trying to figure out where it had CUCUMBER!?!?! It’s like calling peanut butter “jelly sandwich spread”. For those of us who like to “search” for a recipe maybe you could change the name. Just a thought.

    1. CJ, thanks for your thoughts. This recipe is made FOR cucumbers, not FROM cucumbers – just like Chip Dip is made FOR chips and not FROM Chips. Typically dips that are made FROM cucumbers is called Tzatziki (I am sure there are more, just that one comes to mind). As shown in the images on my site, on Pinterest (where a cucumber is being dipped into it) and the description on google also says its made for cucumbers not from so no one clicks that isnt looking for it. That being said, this dip could easily add small diced cucumbers and be delicious as its complimentary to the flavors. Again, thanks for your thoughts and I hope you find a recipe you are looking for. ~Trisha

  10. Hi Trisha, just wondering if there is a particular reason to use Hellman’s mayonnaise versus other brands. Most of us southerners usually prefer “Dukes”…Thanks!

    1. hi brenda, I am also from the south, welcome! Its honestly just a preference – Dukes is fine to use. I just mention because my grandmother has this HORRIBLE habit of putting miracle whip in things and it grosses me out – so I always try to press the importance of Mayo. The brand can be your own choice. ~Trisha

  11. This is exactly like the base for my corned beef dip. Make this mixture and then finely crumble canned corned beef- not corned beef hash make sure to get beef only. Refrigerate overnight to let flavors blend and serve in a rye bread bowl with cubed bread, pretzels and veggies. Really amazing!

    1. I dont think I have ever had canned corned beef- I will pick it up and try it!

    2. Jennifer Northcutt says:

      Can you tell me a brand for the corned beef please? That sounds amazing.

  12. I would love to use fresh ingredients — do you know how fresh minced onion and parsley would work in this recipe?

    1. Hi Cathey,

      One tablespoon of dried minced onion equals 1/4 cup minced raw onion (just make sure you really mince it down). The rule for dried on herbs is 1 tsp dry equals 1 tbsp fresh – so with 2 tablespoons dried of parsley (which is 6 teaspoons), should be approximately 1/3rd of of freshly chopped parsley. Praying my math is correct there LOL!

  13. Jennifer Northcutt says:

    I soak minced onions in hot water till soft if I don’t have time to wait over night. Works out great.

  14. How long is it good for do you think?

    1. I don’t ever keep things in the fridge longer than 3 days personally.

    2. We have used up to a week. It’s so good.

    3. Awesome! I am glad it lasted that long for you – I get worried about dairy dips like this getting watery too long in the fridge.

  15. Aurilia Mosley says:

    Just made this dip and I am already hooked! I used minced onion instead and added some sweet 2 tablespoons of sweet relish! Absolutely amazing!!!!

  16. Felicia Gaston says:

    I made this with fresh minced onion & dill and this was GOOD!!!!! I LOVE IT! Thank you for sharing this. My 12 year old loves it too. I am sure when my husband gets home he’s going to dig it too. :o)

  17. Yummy! Great base to customize. I didn’t have these particular dried herbs so I used double the measurements of fresh dill and parsley. Added the juice of 1/2 lemon because I had it left over and grated a clove of garlic. Very tasty.

  18. If you’re thinking you’d like to add cucumber to this already delicious dip recipe, just a reminder to either remove the cucumber seeds first before dicing them or dicing them, adding a little salt and then placing them in a strainer for 30 to 40 minutes to leach out the water. If you DON’T do either of these things first you’ll have a very runny dip!

  19. I make this all the time but a little different ….I use just zero carb sour cream ad use large size grater and quarter lengthwise a large cucumber and cut out seeds then use a large size grater and grate the cucumber and add tablespoon of lemon juice mix everything together and now I have a great keto Tajikistan sauce/dip I use for burger sauce dip my vegetables and meats in it use with almost everything I eat sometimes I I think I’m hungry and I go in frig and take and eat just a tablespoon…..so so yummy……👍🎁

  20. awesome dip hits the spot when a fresh cool snack is your craving.

    1. thank you for your feedback!

  21. Michele Deal says:

    This is delicious! I just finished making it. It was fast and easy AND I had all the ingredients. So good with fresh veggies but I know it will be good as a topper on a baked tater. Thanks for the recipe!

  22. I made this a couple of weeks ago and it is delicious! Thank you for sharing!

  23. Have you ever used fat free sour cream instead of whole fat sour cream?

    1. No, I have not, but as far as consistency, should be the same. The taste will just be more of the taste of the fat free, but if you are used to that, there should be no issue in this variation. Enjoy!

  24. This is absolutely delicious!! Followed the recipe exactly. I also plan to use as a spread for a sandwich on keto bread tomorrow.

  25. Delicious! This will be a staple going forward.

  26. How about using fresh dill?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      You could use fresh dill!

  27. Jody Campbell says:

    I loved what Liz was saying. I was looking for a lower calorie option for a filling for mini peppers. I added cucumbers (after dicing, letting drain in strainer, and a bit o salt).And this was lovely. Thank you for giving a building bridge….that is what sharing and recicipes are all about. I will be looking for more from you!

  28. This recipe is definitely a KEEP!!! Super quick and easy and DELICIOUS!!! Already bookmarked your page!

  29. brenda.brenner80@gmail.com says:

    This is a gab recipe, but not for celiacs or chrons
    .we can sub sour cream, ( no milk for us) Hellman’s low fat is gluten free, .. fresh herbs best.. thnx for sharing

  30. My family adores cukes and loves to dip them and I’ve been making a currie dip for 50 years that is beloved, but this one sounds good, too! From my experence, if you blot the cukes on paper towels after slicing, the dip will stick and not slide off (horrors!). It works for dipping cukes into guac, as well!

  31. David Coolwater says:

    OMG!!! I was looking for something simple to make for cucumber and this recipe was IT. It was very simple to make and very TASTY. Wow… All the indgridents we had on hand ready… Mixed it all together within 10 minutes… Thank you for the recipe… I love it…

  32. sue griffore says:

    sounds good, but I don’t understand why it is called cucumber…….. no cucumber in it?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Its for cucumbers, not made from cucumbers. “Cucumber dip”

  33. How far in advance can you make this dip?
    Thanks

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I would say 24 hours in a sealed container. Just mix well before serving. To help peserve it, add a piece of plastic wrap to the top of the dip before sealing. That should help with some of the watering that could occur in a dip.

  34. Serving size is 1 g (portion size of a fingernail? ). That cuc in pic is 3-4 servings?
    Cal – 330k??
    Nutrition is confusing.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Marla- for some reason the new update on the recipe card software we use, started adding in “gram” behind the 1 serving. That was something that happened recently. It was actually set up to say how many servings is in each dish and then it would divide that by the amount in there and show you what 1/6th was. As noted below the recipe card, I dont have control how it displays and to use a separate nutritional card. I would just remove the nutrition if I could because its just wrong so much of the time. Now that its added that gram next to all the 1 portion serving, its been throwing people off all day. Im gonna see how I can fix it.

  35. This looks so good! What a great snack to make for kids and their friends!

  36. Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I dont keep things much past the 3 day mark in my house because of the smells in the fridge and all that. As long as its really sealed well and you stir before eating again, I think 3-4 days is fine.

    2. Trisha Haas says:

      I always recommend about 3 days.

  37. Shelley Leech-Logelin says:

    Absolutely our favourite! Delicious recipe! Make this if you want your kids to eat more veggies. Problem solved!!

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      It also gets me to eat my veggies!

  38. Frances Olds says:

    This dip is amazing!! Made for the 4th of July with sliced cucumbers and it was a hit!! Just made some more as a snack with cucumbers. Love that its keto and is healthy!!

    Also good with many other things!!💓

  39. This looks so good! What a great side to serve with cukes from the garden!

  40. Thanks for sharing! Does it freeze well?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I have not actually tested freezing this dip.

  41. Can I leave out the dill, as I am allergic to it.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Yes, you could leave out any herb or spice, but you may want to substitute with your favorite in place of it.

  42. Susan Walters says:

    This recipe is awesome!!! I didn’t have Dill but had Dill pickle potato chips and it tasted so good with those chips! My husband could not stop eating them.

  43. Susan Walters says:

    This recipe is awesome!!! I didn’t have Dill but had Dill pickle potato chips and it tasted so good with those chips! My husband could not stop eating them.

  44. I just made this dip and I love it already ! Very tasty

  45. This is an awesome and versatile dip!!! I love it for dipping cucumbers and red pepper slices. I also use it as a sandwich spread. It stays fresh tasting for at least 3 weeks or more.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Thanks, Beth. I am so glad you love this dip recipe!

  46. Added a dash of garlic powder. Ate 2 entire cucumbers in 1 sitting. DELICIOUS!

  47. Stephanie J says:

    This dip/sauce is super easy, inexpensive and extremely delicious! Goes well with chips as well.. absolutely love it!

  48. This is very similar to a dip I make for every holiday :
    8 oz sour cream
    Cup of Mayo
    1 tsp parsley
    1 tsp dill seeds
    1 tsp dried onion
    1 tsp seasoned salt
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

    Mix together and refrigerate overnight. Serve in a hollowed out round rye bread. Use the bread for dipping and veggies. My grandkids love it so much I have to buy an extra loaf of bread and double the recipe.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Hi Marie! Thank you for sharing your own personal dip recipe. I love trying other variations. Appreciate you stopping by!

      trisha

  49. I absolutely love this recipe. I use light sour cream. It turns out fantastic every time. I’ve used it as a dip for a bread bowl, veggie dip, and even as a sandwich spread. Awesome.

  50. The best dip! So easy to make and goes with any vegetable or pretzel thins! Makes an amazing amount and keeps well in the refrigerator.

  51. Yes Delicious 😋 Thank You 😊

  52. It really is the best dip, hood with everything 😋

  53. I added a bit of honey (like a tsp) and it was dynamite! Great dip recipe!
