A sure classic for a crowd. This dip is creamy with pretty flecks of green dill. Serve this with a range of crudite such as carrot sticks, celery, radishes, or cauliflower.

With some modifications this dip is 5 star. I decreased the mayo by 1/4 c. and increased the sour cream by 1/4 c. decreased sugar to scant 1 tsp. and added to taste: lemon juice Italian Seasoning fresh minced garlic garlic powder and garlic salt. This makes a fantastic salad dressing or veggie dip. Read More

This was pretty good. I did like most reviewers did and only used 1-1/2 cups of mayonnaise and my husband still said he tasted too much of it. Instead of chopped onion i used onion powder. Next time I will probably just use sour cream and a packet of hidden valley ranch. Read More

I cut the mayonnaise and sour cream in half BUT I kept the seasonings the same. I also used reduced fat mayonnaise/sour cream. This dip was good but not our favorite. This would make a great base for tartar sauce. Read More

My family really loves this dip. I have made it several times. I thought it was too sweet with the sugar but when I tried to omit the sugar the second time I made it my oldest daughter told me she wouldn't change a thing. The kids eat it with everything. Read More

This is excellent. I too cut back on the sugar and used more sour cream than mayo. I also gave it a bit of hot & spicy seasoned salt. Yum. This is great even right after it's made But does get better after a few hours in the fridge. Read More

This dill dip is awesome. I did cut the mayo to 1.5 cups just for my own preference but this was great! If you can use the Tastefully Simple brand of seasoning salt it's worth getting it just for this dip! Read More
