This Easy Dill Dip is packed with fresh herbs– dill, cilantro, and green onions- plus lime juice and zest for a unique, fresh flavor. It’s the perfect creamy dip for veggies or potato chips, or as a fun spread on a sandwich. The base is sour cream, but you can easily substitute Greek yogurt for a healthier version!
Dill dip is so easy to make in only 5 minutes with 5 ingredients. It’s the perfect thing to make ahead of time for an easy dip for an appetizer at a party, served with crudités, pita chips, or ruffled potato chips.
This fresh, creamy dip has lots of fresh herbs but it’s flexible- you can leave some out or substitute with others.
I like to keep a batch of this in my fridge along with prepped, cut up raw vegges. When I’m feeling like a snack, it’s easy to enjoy the healthy raw veggies with this delicious dip!
Here’s how to make (and use) this super simple dill dip.
How to make dill dip
- First, chop up a bunch of fresh dill, cilantro, and green onion.
- Then, juice and zest a lime.
- Finally, mix it all up in a bowl with some sour cream, seasoned with salt and pepper. DONE!
The other great thing about this dill dip is how flexible it is. Here are my suggestions:
- For a healthier, lighter version, use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. For a really light version, use fat-free Greek yogurt.
- Don’t like cilantro? Double up the dill as a substitution, or use parsley instead.
- Don’t have a lime? Use a lemon instead, or even a tablespoon of vinegar (such as red or white wine vinegar) in a pinch.
- Use chives instead of green onions, if you prefer.
What to serve with Dill Dip
This dip is so much more than a dip for veggies or potato chips. Here are other fun ways to use it:
- Use it as a dip for mini hasselback potatoes.
- Serve it on blackened shrimp tacos.
- Mix it up with some hard boiled eggs for a quick and easy egg salad sandwich.
- Spread it on poached salmon.
- Use it on a vegetarian pita sandwich.
- Use as a dip for Greek meatballs.
It’s so versatile!
Make ahead and storage
