Fresh Dill Dip is a delicious appetizer recipe perfect for parties or get-togethers. This recipe is simple to prepare and tastes great! A creamy mixture of Dijon, sour cream, herbs, and simple seasonings makes this dip irresistible.
- Sour cream – While this original recipe uses sour cream, this ingredient can easily be substituted for Greek Yogurt.
- Real mayonnaise – Use full-fat products versus low-fat or fat-free to keep the flavor full.
- Dijon mustard – Just a note not to accidentally use Dijon honey, or it will not taste the same.
- Half a lemon (about one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice)
- Chopped fresh dill – Also called dill weed, fresh dill is typically readily available at the store. You can use dried dill, but it will not taste as good. Conversion needs to be done on fresh versus dried, and the texture will change unless you allow proper time in the fridge for the dried herbs to soften.
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- Alternative spices – This dip can also be made with various changes by adding minced onion (or onion powder), minced roasted garlic (or garlic powder), and other fresh herbs to your liking.

Best Veggies for Dipping

How to make Homemade Dill dip as a Salad Dressing?
Dips and dressings are often interchangeable in flavor but vary in type of consistency.
Add milk (1 tablespoon at a time) until desired texture is reached to thin out any dip recipe into a dressing. Take that boring salad to something amazing!
Can dill dip be frozen?
Dairy products (like sour cream) do not do well when frozen as they tend to separate and later texture. I do not recommend freezing this dip recipe.
