Tangy, thick ‘n creamy, packed with dill pickle flavor—this Dill Pickle Dip is so easy to make and comes together in minutes! Perfect as a dip for appetizers and on sandwiches.



Dill Pickle Dip Ingredients

  • 1 package cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup dill pickles, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped*
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ cup dill pickle juice, or to taste (juice from dill pickle jar) – I used 3 tablespoons for thick but slightly liquidy dip

Optional Toppings

  • Fresh dill, chopped
  • Dill pickles, chopped or dill pickle chips

Serve with

  • Baby carrots
  • Potato chips
  • Pretzels


  1. In a medium bowl, use a large fork to stir together softened cream cheese and sour cream.
  2. Add in dill pickles, fresh dill, and garlic salt. Stir and fold until very well mixed—here, I switched to folding with a spatula.
  3. Stir in pickle juice and adjust to taste and desired consistency. The thinner you want the dip, the more juice you can use, and vice versa.
  4. Refrigerate up to 4 hours or serve immediately.
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl and optionally top with dill and pickles. Serve with baked tortilla chips, potato chips, pretzels, air fried onion rings and more.


*You can sub the fresh dill for 1 teaspoon of dried dill, but the fresh dill has a brighter taste.

For a spicy kick, stir in chopped jalapeños or use cajun seasoning in place of garlic salt.
