About THIS DILL DIP RECIPE
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.

How to make Dill Dip
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.
- Simply chop the fresh dill and onion.
- Cut the cucumber in half and remove the seeds.
- Combine the Greek yogurt and mayonnaise in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
- 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.

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.
How long is dill dip good for?
You can keep the dip in your refrigerator for about 3 days without any problems. If you notice any separation, just give it a quick stir.
