Holiday Traditions: Dill Dip Recipe

Posted on

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! There are some things in life that will always make me giddy with excitement, and one of those is our family’s dill dip recipe.  It is so simple, but one of those things that we only make around the holidays for some reason.  Imagine me doing the food dance in the kitchen while eating an entire bowl of this to myself.  That is probably what I am doing right now as you are reading this, because this dill dip recipe is seriously that good.

Dill Dip Holiday Recipe

Not only delicious, but ridiculously easy too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 3 tablespoons minced onion flakes
  • 3 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 3 teaspoons beau monde

Dill Dip Holiday Recipe Ingredients

Mix all the ingredient together in a large bowl.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Trust me, the dip is better once chilled so that the dried herbs are not crunchy.  Serve with your choice of veggies, cracker or bread.  I prefer carrots, celery and bell pepper as my dipping weapons of choice.  I am so excited for the Holidays can can’t wait to be gorging on all the amazing food.  Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving :)
