Pickle Dip!!

Growing up, I was kind of obsessed with pickles. I loved any and all pickles, from tangy dill pickles to my Granny’s homemade sweet pickles. I’d eat them straight out of the jar! (Ok, I still do!)

This year my cucumber plants have been extremely productive, which is amazing considering the record-breaking heat wave we’ve had here in Texas! So my fresh cucs don’t go to waste, I’ve been trying out a lot of different pickle recipes. I’m so excited to share this pickle dip recipe with my fellow dill pickle lovers!

Pickle dip is a deli style dip, creamy and flavorful. It’s perfect for potlucks!

The really awesome thing about this recipe is that you can’t mess up! And while I’ve offered suggestions, you’re welcome to use your favorite types of pickles to try new flavor combinations. We used three types of pickles in our recipe!

If you love pickles, you’re going to LOVE this dish! Loaded with chopped-up pickles and fresh herbs, this is a flavorful and creamy dip you’ll want seconds of! This dip is the perfect recipe for a quick snack and an easy-to-make appetizer for parties. Be sure to serve with plenty of chips, because you’re going to want to enjoy it all!

Prep Tips

  • Softening the cream cheese makes it a lot easier to blend. To do so, allow the cream cheese to sit on the counter for 30 minutes to an hour, if you have the time. Do not microwave or melt.
  • If the dip seems too thick, you can stir in some of the pickle juice from the jar to make it more spreadable or dip-able.
  • Pickle dip also makes a delicious sandwich spread or topping for crackers!
  • While you can serve right away after mixing, for best results you’ll want to chill for an hour or two as the recipe recommends. This helps the flavors develop!
  • Try garnishing your bowl of dip with pickle slices or fresh dill.
  • The recipe as written is fairly low in carbs, with only 8 grams total carbohydrates per serving and 7 grams net carbs (total carbs – fiber). You can make it more keto friendly by sticking to dill pickle relish instead of sweet pickle relish and serving with low carb vegetables.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Use Different Types of Pickles?

We used primarily dill pickles for this recipe, as well as bread and butter pickles. However, you can use any type of pickle that you like to change up the flavor! The only thing you need to do is to keep the same overall amount of pickles, as much as possible.

You may notice that we didn’t do “cup” measurements for the pickles, instead we gave an approximate number of dill pickle spears and bread and butter chips. This will give you a starting point, but don’t worry about getting the amounts exactly right because your pickle spears may be bigger or smaller than ours. That’s ok! The good thing is that this recipe is pretty much foolproof!

Should You Use Homemade or Store-Bought Pickles?

Either way is fine! I grow a lot of cucumbers, so I make a lot of different pickles. You’re welcome to try my any of my favorite pickle recipes to make this dip:

However, store-bought pickles are totally ok too!

Can You Make This Recipe Ahead of Time?

Yes! This is an excellent recipe to make a day ahead and keep refrigerated until party time. This extra chill time allows the flavors to mingle and really come together.

Keep refrigerated in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve. All leftover dip should be stored in the refrigerator as well.

What Can I Substitute for Everything Bagel Seasoning?

Everything Bagel seasoning is a blend of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt. Think about the crunchy topping on a savory bagel and you’ll get an idea of what this popular spice blend tastes like.

If you don’t have any on hand, you can add a pinch of any or all of the components listed above. Or you can omit the seasoning altogether and just enjoy the bold pickle flavors of this dip.
