I love cream cheese. I love pickles. I love dip.  When you combine the two you get an easy dip for a party, a picnic or a simple snack at home! This dip contains only 4 ingredients, but it produces a big flavor that is crave-worthy!

Dill Pickle Dip comes together in under 5 minutes and it’s one of those dips that everyone absolutely loves. It is important to remember that the dip will thicken as it rests in the refrigerator before serving so be sure to add enough liquid to keep it smooth so you don’t end up with a chip-wreck!
The pickle juice in this recipe really blends well with the cream cheese and the addition of chopped pickles and fresh dill just adds so much pickley goodness!!

We use this to dip chips but it’s great with veggies (like cucumbers, carrots and celery) or even spread on crackers or pita chips! I’m always asked for the recipe, so be sure to print a few extra copies if you’re bringing this along to a party!

    1. Extra pickle juice always helps but if not serving it immediately I like to let mine sit at room temperature for a bit before serving to let the cream cheese soften and then give it a good stir. If serving immediately, you can use a hand mixer to whip the cream cheese before adding the pickle juice to help soften it for dipping.

  1. This is my current pregnancy craving but there has to be something wrong with the serving sizes. According to this, I might be eating for twelve, not two. Regardless I love how quick and easy this dip is to make. Thanks for the delicious recipe!5 stars

  2. Always great to be able to pull something together from stuff in the fridge at the last minute. This is one of those recipes and it’s pretty tasty. I added a hint of orange zest I had hanging around and think it gave it a little shove in the right direction.

  3. I’ve tried other recipes, with all kinds of additional stuff added, which was not necessary. THIS is THE pickle dip I will be making from now on! Its hard to stop eating, its so darn good! Thanks so much for this! :-)5 stars

  4. Hello. I made this. Added fresh chives from my garden and instead of sour cream, I substituted Marzetti dill vegetable dip……O-M-G……so good! Thanks so much. My family loved it! We all love dill.

  5. When I was in high school (50 years ago) my mother would buy Kraft’s dill pickle dip and I would sneak it and a bag of potato chips into my bedroom and eat until the container was empty! I even remember the container – it had aa green aluminum tin bottom with a peel back lid. I have been looking for that dip for 50 years ( I’m not kidding) so when I found the recipe on this site I was/am thrilled and will be buying the ingredients today and hopefully enjoying some delicious dill pickle dip with my favorite Ruffles Potato Chips this evening!! I assume it is no longer made. But if it is, can you tell me what grocery store(s) in the greater Kansas City area carryit and I’ll be on my way there by noon! Thanks for making my day/week/month and year!!! . I’ll rate the recipe after I’ve tried it I also plan to make the other recipes on this site which all look and sound delicious. We shall se. . .

    1. This is my all-time favorite dip and since it is so easy to make at home I enjoy it way too much! I have seen it in our local grocery store but I am not sure where you will find it specifically in Kansas, maybe another reader will be able to help with that! But in the meantime, enjoy this tasty recreation Allyn! I hope it lives up to your memories :)

  6. Girl!!! You’re the real MVP putting that button “jump to recipe” THANK YOU! So many times I’m in a hurry and just want the recipe!! Also I’m dying to try this! Pickles are my FAVE!! So glad I found your page! ❤️

  7. What do you dip it with?
    Crackers, tortilla chips, veggies? What’s your favorite to those of you who have tried it, thanks!

  8. Made this and it’s DELICIOUS!!! Takes about 3 minutes to prepare and it was a hit! Next time I’ll triple the amounts. Mmmmmm Didn’t have fresh dill; used dried and it still tastes SCRUMPTIOUS! 

  9. Hey! I’m making this for a party, and I’m just wondering if it’ll keep well (about 24 hours) or if it needs to be eaten soon after making.


  10. Only other thing to add is a bit of black pepper. It adds a whole not her flavor dimension. Very good.
