I don’t know about you guys, but our family hasn’t always been easy. As a new bride (almost 20 years ago!) I was told the family dilly dip recipe was top secret, and the ring on my finger gave me no real access.  Turns out, variations of dilly dip are a dime a dozen, and after taste testing tons, I can honestly say you really cannot mess up this dip, and they all taste almost the same.  I almost feel like this isn’t even a recipe I should share because it’s so simple, but I don’t want your taste buds to be deprived, so here we go.

Side note: when cooking, I don’t measure … feel free to let the light guide you too, friends.

Let’s dig into the action.

  1. Grab a bowl. Make sure said bowl is bigger than you think you’ll need, because you’re going to want more dip than you think you’ll need.
  2. Into the bowl, add equal parts sour cream and mayo. You can sub out greek yogurt. You can use any kind of mayo that makes you happy. You can even eyeball the ratio, and all will remain right with the world. Let’s pretend you did a cup of each for the rest of these measurements – scale up or down based on what you actually did.
  3. Add 2 TBS of Seasoning Salt, 2 TBS dried Dill Weed, 1 tbs Parsley .  Confession time: I almost always double the dill weed.  We like flavor!
  4. Let is sit for at least 30 minutes. When we have a holiday, event, or any other time where I want to pretend I have my poop in a group, I make this the night before. Letting it sit makes a huge difference!
  5. Serve this keto friendly dip with veggies, on burgers, use it as a dipping sauce for wings, or smear it on a baked potato. Really any vehicle you can think of to get it into your mouth will probably work. I’ve even made a small batch (or used some leftovers) and tossed in sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes and called it a salad!  
  6. Enjoy!
