Creamy Dill Dip

About: I've been posting Instructables since the site's inception, and now build other things at Autodesk. Follow me for food and more!

All vegetables taste better when covered in this easy dip.

Step 1: Mix Base

Combine the following:

~2c sour cream
~1/2c mayonnaise
2-10 cloves garlic, grated

Mix and taste. The base should taste mellow, slightly sweet, with a little garlic bite.

Step 2: Add Seasonings

Combine the following:

1/2 onion, finely chopped
bunch dill, finely chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced
dash of Worchestershire or soy sauce
salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

Stir and taste. Adjust seasonings as necessary. The flavors wll mellow and mingle if allowed to sit, so making this dip ahead and storing it in the refrigerator is preferable.

Step 3: Serve

Serve with a selection of chopped fresh vegetables such as carrots, celery, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, green beans, or jicama.

Unused dip should store in the refrigerator for just under a week.

    I think i'll try greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise because I really don't like any sweet in my savory. I grow my own dill, so I have it coming out my ears! Thanks for another way to use it!

    Hmm. Care to try for an "onion dip" reMake that isn't so salty as the Lipton Soup recipe (more the dried onion and beef bullion "homebrew") I'm not even sure what it should taste like, but it has to go with chips...

    I've made a version before that was pretty good. As I recall, it involved Worchestershire sauce, scallions, finely minced/grated onions, and some extra-finely grated parmesan. A bit of buttermilk would probably help. Next time I'll experiment and let you know what we come up with- maybe New Year's.
