Homemade Dill Pickle Dip is perfect for picnics, cookouts, or just to enjoy any time of year!
Homemade Dill Pickle Dip
I recently thought of making Homemade Dill Pickle Dip when I happened to find Dill Pickle Popcorn at my local Aldi.
That stuff is SO good. I can hardly stay away from it! If you love all things Dill Pickle, you might know that it’s hard to find dill snacks. There are a few brands which have always carried dill flavored products, but after having that new popcorn I decided to see if I could come up with some of my own delicious dill foods.
I am excited to share this easy Dill Pickle Dip!
Dill Pickle Dip – Seasoning
First, you will need some Dill Pickle Seasoning. This dip recipe uses my homemade Dill Pickle seasoning.
If you don’t have the ingredients for that, you can find Dill Pickle Seasoning online. However, any store-bought Dill Pickle seasoning may be stronger –or even less flavorful– than the homemade version linked above. So if you’re using a store-bought seasoning, test taste the dip before you serve! 🙂
Since I wanted to make a few snacks and try out new Dill Pickle recipes in the coming weeks, I definitely wanted to make my own seasoning up.
It’s important to note, this Dill Pickle Seasoning is to flavor foods, rather than make your own dill pickles in the fridge! That’s another recipe all together! 🙂
Add Dip Ingredients
After you have your dill seasoning prepared, you will need 1/4 cup of powdered buttermilk.
You can find Powdered Buttermilk in the baking section of your grocery store. It’s usually around where the Biscuit Mixes are located.
A Couple Kitchen Hacks:
If you’ve never cooked with powdered buttermilk, I have to say you need to have this in your kitchen! This amazing stuff can go in pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and dip recipes. If I have it on hand I always add it to my flour for coating chicken before frying.
After I started making my own Homemade Ranch Seasoning, I realized how much flavor it adds to dips! It can also stretch out biscuit mix a little bit, which is nice if you’re trying to get one last batch of pancakes out of a box of mix! We’ve all been there. 🙂
It’s important to keep Powdered Buttermilk refrigerated after opening, and also refrigerate any dips which use it as an ingredient. I mark the date on my homemade dip mixes before they go into the fridge, so I don’t have to guess at when they were made!
Mix your powdered buttermilk with the entire batch of Homemade Dill Pickle Seasoning. You can keep in a glass jar, seal and add the date and put the rest in the fridge for later.
I just label it as Homemade Dill Pickle Dip.
To make one batch of dip, just add two Tablespoons of your Homemade Dill Pickle Dip Seasoning to 8 oz of sour cream.
For a healthier option, you can use Light Sour Cream, or even Plain No Fat Greek Yogurt.
The only difference with using Greek Yogurt –that I have noticed personally– is that Greek Yogurt just don’t last as long in the fridge. While I can get at least 2 days out of a homemade sour cream based dip, the Greek Yogurt dip will be best on the day it’s made. It does separate some if it’s in the fridge, but just give it a good stir before serving.
Honestly, the kids can’t even tell when dips are made with Greek Yogurt, and I love using it since it’s a great source of fiber and typically has less fat content.
Growing Your Own Dill
If you are a Dill Pickle fanatic, consider growing your own Dill right in your garden! This herb is actually a great starter plant, and you can easily dry the dill to store for use in recipes. We also use it as a companion plant, since it’s a plant that draws good insects like praying mantises and ladybugs. It also helps as a companion to Asparagus, Corn, Cucumbers, Onion, and Lettuce.
We have the Ninja Foodi 9-in-1 with the dehydrating feature, and it’s great for drying our own herbs to store for later.
We grow our own Dill in the garden but you can also find potted Dill to grow right in the kitchen. It’s a fun project for the kids too! We’ve listed a couple herb kits available on Amazon if you’re interested.
