Recipe Snapshot: Dill Pickle Dip

I chose this recipe for one simple reason. I love the combination of dill pickles and potato chips. And, this dip was delicious with its tart and salty blend. I loved it! Plus, it's just one of those recipes that can be quickly whipped together with items that are probably already in your refrigerator. This recipe is from Gooseberry Patch's Quick and Easy Christmas, copyright 2011.

Dill Pickle Dip

8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 c. sour cream
5 to 6 whole dill pickles, chopped
1-1/4 tsp. garlic salt, or to taste
Optional: pickle juice
potato chips

Mix together all ingredients except chips. If using, stir in pickle juice to desired consistency. Cover and chill 24 hours. Serve with chips. Serves 6 to 8.


  1. This sounds so yummy, this recipe will be enjoyed this weekend while we are camping!! Thanx for posting it.

  2. Although the recipe was in a Christmas cookbook, I think it's perfect for the summer. It's great with potato chips but I think would be good as a dip for fries, chicken fingers, or fried seafood. Very versatile and yummy!

  3. Am so, so glad you posted this! 9Just found your blog - wonderful blog!!) Thank you for sharing this recipe from the new book!

  4. My kids love dill pickles & potato chips~ I'm sure this will be a hit at our house!

  5. I made this the first time for my sister Pam who is a pickle connoisseur. She loved it as did I. Don't even think about making a half batch.

    1. It does make a lot of dip. I've been trying to make half batches of things lately. So much seems to go to waste. Glad you liked it. It's one of my favorites, too.
