Pickle dip? What in the world is pickle dip? It is a creamy and slightly tart dip your potato chips have been missing. Do you love French onion dip? If so, I bet you will also be a fan of this tangy dill pickle dip recipe. I used to think that only French onion dip (famous California dip) was the only way to go, but I was wrong. My new favorite appetizer dip recipe is dill pickle dip with cream cheese.
Are you looking for a great dip recipe for your next holiday party, or maybe even your next Super Bowl get together? This dip is a wonderful homemade dip you can make in your own kitchen. It’s filled with cream cheese, sour cream, chopped white onion, and dill pickles. Worcestershire Sauce adds a little extra kick. You get a really nice tangy dip that goes great with chips.
I personally love to create my own dips from scratch. They are easy to make and, best of all, you can make them without all of those ingredients you can’t identify. I have to say the copykat kitchen loved testing this recipe. We devoured a couple of bowls of this dip until we got it just right.
