How to Make Dill Pickle Dip

Tips for Success
- There are a variety of pickles that will work in this dip, not just dill! If you like sweet Gherkins or spicy pickles, add those to the dip or a combination of different flavored pickles, so each bite is a flavor explosion!
- Once the dip has been in the fridge for a while, check the consistency. If the dip is too thick for your liking, add more pickle juice, a little at a time, until you get the consistency you like. It is best to do this after the dip has sat for a bit in the fridge so that you know what the proper consistency is.
- When stored in an airtight container, this dip will last for three to four days in the fridge or for up to two months in the freezer. If you freeze it, allow it to thaw in the fridge before enjoying it.
What’s in pickle dip?
There are so many different ways to make this stellar dip, and the recipe above is a ridiculously tasty and lightened-up version due to the use of Greek yogurt. In many other recipes, the creamy base is made using Mayonnaise and sour cream, along with cream cheese. Ranch seasoning is a common addition and, because of the bold flavors, tends to take over the dip, so the pickle is a little less of the star of the dish. However you make Dill Pickle Dip, everyone will happily eat it because it’s too delicious to pass up!
