It's the start of the Victoria Day Long Weekend here in Canada, also known as May Two-Four!
The sun is shining, BBQs are getting loaded with delicious summer food and there's of course party food! What's a party without dip?
No matter what kind of party or get together you might be having, dip with some crispy crunchy chips and veggies is always a welcome guest.
Today, I'm sharing with you my ridiculously easy and delicious dill dip recipe!
One of the great things about being a mom/food blogger is that it's also an awesome excuse to test my recipe experiments over and again until they're perfect. And test this I did! I'm just going to be honest – I've been making and testing this dip over and over for the last few weeks, without a party to bring it to! lol
I hope you enjoy this recipe! ❤️ If you give it a try, please let me know how it turned out for you in the comments section at the bottom of the page or share a pic of your om noms on Instagram and tag @dishesanddustbunnies! ❤️

What is Dill Dip Made of?
For this recipe I used a combination of dried dill weed, onion flakes, seasoning salt and parsley all mixed together with a sour cream and mayonnaise base. If you'd like to skip the mayo for a lighter version, you could use some thick plain yogurt instead – which ever you prefer – either will be amazing!
The fresh zippy flavours of the dill make this dip so scrumptious you'll be making it over and over again! 😀
Can you substitute dried dill for fresh?
Yes, you certainly can use fresh dill instead of dried if you have it on hand! If you'd like to substitute keep in mind that about 1 tsp of dried dill is equal to 1 tbsp of fresh dill.
For this recipe I used 1 ½ tbsp of dried dill weed, so that would equal about 4 ½ tbsps of fresh dill weed.
How long is homemade Dill Dill Good for?
When stored in an air tight container in the fridge, homemade dill dip should be good for about 4 days.
Can I freeze leftover dill dip? I find that dill dip is best when fresh made and do not recommend freezing it.
What to serve with Dill Dip
Homemade dill dip will go very well with so many different things! Here are a few ideas on how to use it:
- With veggies such as carrots, celery, red pepper slices, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices
- As a spread for sandwiches
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
- 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1 ½ tbsp dried dill weed
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- Combine all ingredients together and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. For best results chill overnight.
- Serve as a dip with chips or with veggies. 😀
If you'd like to make a lighter version of this, you can substitute the mayonnaise for some plain flavoured Greek Yogurt.
