This delicious dill dip is just bursting with delicate flavors. It just might be one of the most versatile and popular dips in your recipe book.

This vegetable dip is perfect on the picnic table paired with fresh vegetables like celery stalks or carrot sticks. And it’s just as popular as a decadent snack food paired with potato chips for a Game Day party.

There have been times when I’ve made this simple dill dip recipe at the last minute just because it’s so easy to prepare and doesn’t take more than ten minutes in the kitchen.

And this dill dip isn’t just easy to prepare, it’s also versatile. When I’ve made this at the last moment, I’ve sometimes used dried dill weed when I didn’t have fresh dill in my kitchen.

Dill is one of the dried herbs to always have in the spice rack!

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.

Oftentimes the flavors just get better when the herbs are given time to infuse the yogurt.


How to make Dill Dip

Ingredients for the dill dip before they are combined

This creamy dip can be made in less than 10 minutes. I usually make it with fresh dill, cucumber, onions, and a combination of greek yogurt and mayonnaise.

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.

  1. Simply chop the fresh dill and onion.
  2. Cut the cucumber in half and remove the seeds.
  3. Combine the Greek yogurt and mayonnaise in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  4. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the chopped dill, onions, and cucumber.

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. 

How to serve dill dip

Dips can make a table look more festive or more formal. It all depends on how you decide to serve it. It seems there are dip platters to suit all occasions.

And there are even several great travel dip platters that are perfect to take to a picnic.

This is one of my favorite dip platters. And it could be that I could be accused of owning too many of them! This is my favorite wooden dip platter I use for parties at home.

Can you freeze Cucumber Dill Dip Recipe?

If you make dill dip with just 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 and or look very appealing.
