This pickle dip is the perfect dip for summer and only takes about 5 minutes to make! Try it with potato chips, pretzels, or buttery crackers!
Dill pickle dip is one of the easiest dips you can make in a pinch. All you need is a few simple ingredients and you have a tasty, tangy, creamy, cool dip that everyone will love.
What kind of pickles are best?
My favorite pickles to use for pickle dip are the Kosher dill pickle spears. It doesn’t really matter what brand. They are easy to chop up and they have a great flavor. I have used the baby dill pickles and whole pickles before and they work fine, they just take a little big longer to chop. If you are looking for something sweeter and homemade– try it with our Virginia Chunk Sweet Pickles recipe!
What goes well with dill pickle dip?
The options here are endless! Try this pickle dip with potato chips (our favorite), Ritz crackers, Milton’s gluten free crackers, pita chips or pretzels. You can also use fresh vegetables like broccoli, carrots, celery or cauliflower.
I love the Greek yogurt in this recipe because I think it adds the right amount of smooth texture and it makes it marginally healthier. It also makes it more dense and I just love the tangy flavor it adds. If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can swap it out for sour cream or mayonnaise.
If you want to add another dimension of flavor, you can add a packet of ranch dressing mix. To make it a ham and pickle dip (which is like our Ham and Pickle Roll Ups in dip form) just chop up a 1/2 Lb. of sliced deli ham and add it to the mixture with the pickles. So tasty!
Is pickle dip gluten free?
Yes! This pickle dip is totally gluten-free. If serving to someone with a gluten allergy, just be sure to have the gluten-free chips or crackers in a separate bowl from pretzels or any other chip/cracker that contains gluten. Potato chips, Milton’s GF crackers, and tortilla chips are great GF options.
