  • Pickles – The star ingredient and why we are all here. As somewhat of a pickle expert, I need to say this: there are good pickles and bad pickles. The pickles you choose can make or break this dish because the majority of the flavor here comes from this ingredient. For this dip, I love using Roland® Dill Pickle Sandwich Chips. Not only do they have a fantastic dill flavor, but the chip format makes them super easy to prep and chop for the recipe. Their crisp yet not hard texture, and briny dill juice, make these pickles a fantastic addition to the dip. If you are interested in making this dip with Roland® pickles, find them on Instacart or in a store near you HERE!
  • Cream Cheese – Cream cheese is added not only for its tangy flavor but also for body and thickness. Feel free to choose cream cheese from a tub or block. Ensure that the cream cheese comes fully to room temperature before making this dip.
  • Sour Cream
  • Mayo – While cream cheese is added to give the dip thickness, mayo is included to make it creamier. Full fat is recommended, but if you are looking to cut back a bit, then light mayo can be substituted.
  • Dill – Fresh only!
  • Parsley – Fresh only!
  • Chives – Fresh only!
  • Lemon – Fresh only, you need both the zest of a full lemon and the juice from 1/4th of the lemon.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

Listen I would eat this dip off a spoon it is that good, but if you are looking for some suggestions on what to serve with this pickle dip see below.

  • Crackers or Flatbreads – I absolutely love Roland Foods Toasted Everything Flatbread Crackers. These flatbread crackers are coated with a savory blend of garlic, onion, sesame, poppy, and caraway seeds, adding another layer of flavor that pairs perfectly with this cool, tangy, and briny dip. They are crisp, flavorful, with a perfect thickness for picking up this thick dip.
  • Chips & Pretzels
  • Crudités – Just a fancy way of saying raw vegetables. Serve with carrot sticks, Persian cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, snap peas, or tomatoes for a healthier dipping option.


This one is almost so easy you don’t need a step by step.

Prep the Ingredients – Before you do anything bring the cream cheese to room temperature ( I will get more into this in the next step). Cut the herbs and pickles. For the pickles you can either cube them, like I did in the photos, or cut them smaller for even more pickle flavor.

Combine the Base – In a bowl add the cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream. Like I said above it is important that the cream cheese is at room temperature to ensure that all three ingredients come together without any chunks. You can either combine the base with a hand mixer or if the cream cheese is truly at room temperature mixing by hand also works. This method will take a bit more elbow grease.

Add the Rest – Once the base is combined add in the chopped pickles, herbs, lemon zest and juice, garlic and onion powder, and approx. 1 tbsp of the pickle juice. Fold in the ingredients. Let the dip sit in the fridge for 10 minutes before enjoying. Serve with crackers, chips, pretzels or snack of choice.

Don’t want to make this on game day? This dill pickle dip is a great one to make the day before. Simple prep the dip and place in an airtight container in the fridge until the next day.

Dill pickle dip can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. It is best on days 1-2 however can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days before the pickles start releasing too much moisture, and the herbs loose their fresh flavor.
