Why This is the Best Recipe

I love make ahead cold dips for parties but I think this is the best dill dip for veggies because:

  1. Fresh and Flavorful: I love to use fresh dill from my container herb garden when it is in season but dried dill comes really close during the winter.
  2. Pairs Well with Veggies: This is one of my favorite dips for raw veggies, the dill makes everything taste fresh from the garden.
  3. Easy Variations: For years I avoided recipes with mayo in them. If that sounds like you, be sure to check out my easy Greek yogurt and sour cream variations.
  4. Fast & Easy: This whole recipe takes just 5 minutes to prep. You'll have it ready to serve in practically no time.


The ingredients to make a homemade dill dip are on the kitchen counter.

The ingredients to make this easy veggie dip include:

  • Mayonnaise: But don't let this ingredient stop you. If you don't like mayo, I have several easy swaps.
  • Sour Cream
  • Dried Parsley
  • Dried Minced Onion
  • Dill: I prefer fresh dill when I can but dried dill works great in a pinch.
  • Seasoned Salt: Any brand you love will work but I particularly recommend my homemade seasoned salt
  • Sugar

For Serving:

This is a great veggie dip but you could also use it with potato chips. I particularly enjoy:

  • Baby Carrots
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Raw Broccoli Florets
  • Celery Sticks
  • Bell Pepper Slices
  • Sugar Snap Peas

Fresh Dill vs. Dried Dill

Fresh dill is one of the easier herbs to grow in a container herb garden.

I plant one every spring and then always try to use it to make this dip at least once.

The fresh flavor of garden dill makes a huge difference in this dill dip.

HOWEVER, I love the flavor of dill so much, sometimes I get in the mood to have it in the midwinter.

There is NO reason to spend a lot of money on expensive fresh dill at the grocery store when it is in the middle of winter.

Go ahead and use dried dill, when it is more budget-friendly. It will still add loads of flavor to the dip.

Mix the Dip

To make this easy veggie dip, all you need to do is measure the ingredients and add them to a mixing bowl.

Stir them together and chill.

So. Crazy. Easy.

The ingredients have been measured and are in a white bowl with a spoon about to be stirred.

Make Ahead Tips

This dill dip tastes best once it has had a chance to chill in the fridge for at least one hour.

Personally, I think it tastes even better the next day.

You can mix it up as far as 5 days in advance as long as you store it in an airtight container in the fridge.


If you have an aversion to mayonnaise or you need alternatives for a dietary restriction, you may enjoy one of these easy variations:

  • Sour Cream Dill Dip: Use 2 cups of sour cream, no mayo.
  • Greek Yogurt Dill Dip: Use 2 cups of Green yogurt, no sour cream and no mayo.
  • Sour Cream and Greek Yogurt Dill Dip: Use 1 cup each of sour cream and Greek yogurt, no mayo. *This one is my favorite of the variations because the yogurt adds a bit of tang while the sour cream improves the texture.

Serving Suggestions

A bowl of dill dip has a sprig of dill on the top. The platter has cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, and a sprig of green basil for color.

Dill dip tastes best served cold with crispy, cold raw veggies or salty potato chips.

You could also use it as a spread over grilled fish. It would add something unique to grilled tilapia seasoned with my homemade blackening seasoning.

If you make my seasoned broiled chicken tenderloins, the dill dip would be a tasty sauce for dunking.

You could also make a loaf of my steakhouse brown bread and carve it out to make a bread bowl. Cube the bread for dunking along with the fresh veggies.

Prepared dill dip could even work as a simple salad dressing for a light green lettuce salad or a unique chicken salad dressing.
