Dill Pickle Dip

Believe it or not, summer is upon us.  It doesn’t even seem possible, but July 4th will be here in no time.  The Fourth usually comes along to find us all in the midst of maximizing our time outdoors.  Whether it’s time spent in the pool, at the lake or beach, or even just taking in the great outdoors, we all love summer.  And though it can be downright sweltering here in the deep south, we Southerners love a backyard barbecue.  It’s a time to fire up the grill and spend time with family and friends – and food!  One of my favorite foods to share at a barbecue is my Dill Pickle Dip.  This dip is cool and refreshing and filled with that great dill pickle flavor.  It’s great on chips, crackers, fresh veggies, a spoon… just about anything.  🙂  I like to make mine with Vlasic’s new Farmer’s Garden Pickles.  Since I first saw them on the shelf in their vintage looking mason jar and lid, I  knew they had to be good.  These pickles are canned just like grandma used to do and are artisanal-quality, premium pickles, made with honest ingredients and no artificial flavors. Farmer’s Garden pickles are made with the finest, specially selected ingredients – deliciously ripe cucumbers, whole garlic cloves, slices of red bell pepper, rounds of carrots and fresh herbs and spices – harvested at the peak of freshness.  You can actually see all the chunks of peppers, carrots, and garlic right in the jar.  Any of their five delicious varieties (Zesty Garlic Chips, Bread & Butter Chips, Kosher Dill Spears, Kosher Dill Halves and Dill Chips) would work great in the recipe though I prefer using the Zesty Garlic Chips and the Dill Chips because I find them easier to chop.  🙂

  1. Looks delicious 🙂

  2. Diane Strouss says:

    Favorite simple moments – floating down the river with my besties, eating watermelon at a family picnic, sitting outside at night looking at stars and watching fireflies.

  3. Lazy summer days riding my bike to one of many lakes in southern Michigan.

  4. Amanda Patton says:

    I loved when my mom would make homemade banana nut ice crème and then we would get on our roof and enjoy the fireworks on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. Fun memories.

  5. anne harris says:

    sitting by the pool with a book or two, enjoying the sun contrasted with the cool water. bliss!!

  6. Lisa King says:

    Cut the fat and use greek yogurt in place of cream cheese! 😉

  7. Anywhere near water, there is just something so peaceful and tranquil about watching water. Whether the lake, ocean or pool.

  8. Sitting on the porch on a summer evening enjoying a tall glass of tea while listening to the gentle rain – so relaxing!

  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been looking for a dill pickle dip recipe ever since trying the Target brand. My husband and I both loved it. This one looks to really fit the bill. I have been wanting to try the Farmer’s Garden pickles (if for nothing else to keep the jar to drink from after I finish the jar), so I will definitely be entering the contest (so that I can receive the coupon). 🙂 As for summer activities, we leave today (yikes) to head up north to visit my in-laws to escape the heat. Last week, when I talked to my mother-in-law, it was 70s during the day and 50s at night (at a time when the mercury was dancing at 92 here). Gotta love north Louisiana weather! Also, prepping for the Canada Day (for my husband) celebration and Fourth of July celebrations. Food, fireworks, family, neighbors, and fun!

  10. Why not pair this fabulous dip with Fried Pickles? Thanks for this recipe, I’ll definitely be trying it! 😀

  11. My neice and I are HUGE pickle eaters and I can’t wait to make this with her! #FarmToJar

  12. The dill pickle dip looks delicious. One of my favorite simple summer moments is having crisp clean line-dried sheets on the bed. Sheer bliss. #FarmtoJar

  13. Just wondering if you couldl use dill relish instead of chopping up dill pickles? Any thoughts on this?

  14. Heather P says:

    I was concerned about the added salt but decided to use it anyway. Way to much.

    • Whenever adding salt, I ALWAYS recommend that folks taste first. Did you use Vlasic pickles or another brand? Different brands have different amounts of salt and the brand you used may have had more.

  15. laurie freed says:

    Bet this would make a great condiment for burgers!

  16. Dill pickles and cream cheese, can’t go wrong with this recipe. I can’t eat dairy so I used a non-dairy cream cheese and it’s so good, I can only imagine how much better it is with the real stuff.

  17. Sally Murray Gannon says:

    I absolutely love pickles! I can’t imagine a better dip than one that is made with dill pickles.

  18. Sally Murray Gannon says:

    I absolutely love dill pickles. I can’t wait to make this dip for Christmas. Yumm

  19. This is the Best dip. My family Loved it. I did add 1/2 tsp dill because my testers wanted a little more dill flavor. Enjoyed on chips, veggies and as sandwich spread with fresh homemade sourdough, smoked turkey, and smoked pork loin. Will be a staple in my fridge.

  20. I had this dip at a friend’s house. I was a little reluctant to try it as I don’t like dill pickles, but oh my! It’s sooo good!! She swapped some of the regular pickles with sweet-hot pickles and used the juice from those pickles to add a little heat. It worked! Not sure of her measurements. Making it for Super Bowl!

  21. I’m pregnant and this recipe was just shared on my birth month’s group for all the fellow preggers to lust after. My question is, how many jars of pickles do I need to buy to have the 1 1/2 cups of chopped pickle?

    Looking forward to making this.

  22. I make this, but with a slight variation and it’s delish. I pour the pickle juice into the bowl, then add a tablespoon (I keep forgetting if it’s 1 tablespoon or two–better check against other recipes on this one, lol) into the juice. You want a nice little pool to kind of soak the onions in adequately. Then you let them sit for a bit until they are all soaked up and softened. If you have dry hard ones you need a little more juice. Then add the softened cream cheese and diced pickles and stir it all up. If it’s too thick add a little more pickle juice as needed and chill. The combined flavor of the pickles and onions are so good, plus there is a little bit of a texture from them too.

    • Whoops, I forgot the words “dry minced onions”! I don’t think you can edit so here’s the correction. I got thrown off by my confusion over whether it’s one tbspn or 2 of the minced onions! Anyway, they are the little guys that go in the pickle juice pool to soak up the pickle juice into their little bodies, lol.

      And for clarity, I’m talking about the minced onions in a jar you buy at the grocery, not fresh ones.

    • Sounds great, Vicki!
