Why This Recipe Works
QUICK - I made this recipe at the last minute just because it's so easy to prepare and doesn't take more than ten minutes in the kitchen.
VERSATILE - This dill dip isn't just easy to prepare; it's also versatile. I sometimes use dried dill weed when I didn't have fresh dill in my kitchen. Dill is one of the dried herbs in the spice rack!
PARTY DIP - One thing you'll love about cold appetizers like this simple dill dip is that you can often make them the day before the event. The flavors improve when the herbs are given time to infuse into the yogurt.
How To Make A Dill Dip
This creamy dip can be made in less than 10 minutes.
The next step is important! Cucumbers contain a lot of water. And you want to make sure that your dip doesn't get watered down.
- Mince the dill and dice the onion.
- Peel the cucumber and cut it in half. Use a spoon to scoop the seeds out.
- Combine Greek yogurt and mayonnaise in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
If desired, season with salt and pepper.
Fun Fact: Cucumbers contain over 95% of water! Which is why they are so low in calories. An entire cucumber has only 45 calories. And even by themselves, cucumbers are a great snack.
Can you freeze Cucumber Dill Dip Recipe?
If you make dill dip using Greek yogurt, it'll be perfectly fine to freeze it. But if you're adding mayonnaise to your dill dip, don't try to freeze it.
When you freeze food that includes mayonnaise, the consistency changes. The mayonnaise will separate during the thawing process. And as a result, the dill dip won't have the right texture or look very appealing.
How long is dill dip good for?
You can keep the dip in your refrigerator for 3 days. If you notice any separation, just give it a quick stir before serving.
