- Full fat sour cream and mayonnaise are best for this dip because they make it much creamier than low-fat versions. If you want to cut the fat content you can sub some greek yogurt for half of the sour cream or mayo if desired.
- Start with a teaspoon of Lawry's Seasoning Salt and add more the next day if desired.
- Dried parsley and dill are the easiest for making the dip but you can swap out the dried herbs for fresh herbs if desired.
No fancy equipment is needed to make this easy dill dip. Grab a bowl and a spoon and you are set!
Scoop the sour cream and mayo into a medium bowl and add the seasonings. Stir and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to let the flavors develop.
The hardest thing about this dip? Waiting to eat it....but believe us, it is worth it.
Yes, you can, but use it for part of the sour cream or part of the mayo, not both. It will give the dip a different consistency and a little tangier flavor but will still taste delicious.
This dill dip has a completely different flavor once the herbs and seasonings have been able to hang out in the refrigerator for a few hours. The dip will not taste like much right after mixing it but it becomes a flavor-packed dip a few hours later, so wait to adjust the seasonings for best results.
You can swap in fresh herbs and red onion if you would like, but the beauty of this dip is how easy it is. This is one time we prefer dried herbs over fresh ones. If you want to add fresh herbs, sprinkle some fresh dill on top before serving!
Expert Tips for the Best Dill Dip
✔️ Use full-fat sour cream and mayo for the best consistency. Low-fat variations tend to get watery when sitting in the refrigerator.
✔️ Be sure to let the dip chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or better yet, overnight. The chilling really develops the flavors.
✔️ Wait to adjust seasonings until the dip has chilled. The flavor is entirely different after it has had the chance to sit. If you want it a little more of a particular seasoning feel free to add it the next day.
✔️ Go beyond the typical carrots and celery to serve with your dip! Try adding some fresh green beans, sliced jicama, and cucumber slices to add color and variety to scoop your dip!
