DIP IT GOOD!
Having a few tasty dip recipes in rotation is a total must around here, since we’re always looking for something to dunk veggies in!
Whether it’s for holiday appetizers, entertaining with friends and family, or simply after school snacking of the ravenous variety (MUST EAT ALL THE FOODS!!!), dips do it all! We’re all about the finger foods right now and I’m always eager to get my hands on this dip.
fresh vs dried dill
Both fresh and dried dill work marvelously here so feel free to use what you have on hand!
Because dried herbs are generally more concentrated and flavorful than fresh herbs, you’ll need less when using dried. The general rule of thumb is to use about three times the amount of fresh herbs as dry. This can be adjusted to taste, of course, so if you’l like to start out with a little and then taste and increase the amount as you go, that’s great too.
dill dip serving suggestions
You can serve this spicy dill veggie dip with anything and everything your heart desires!
Since this dill dip is made with Greek yogurt in place of mayo, I like to serve it up Mediterranean mezze platter style with fresh veggies and pita bread.
Carrots, celery, sliced bell pepper, cauliflower, broccoli, and cucumber make excellent dippers.
You can also cut sweet mini peppers in half and use them dunking. Their scoop shape makes them perfect for piling on the dip!
It’s also fantastic with thick-cut potato chips, sweet potato chips, pita chips, and pretzels.
Spicy Dill Dip
Feel free to make this delicious homemade dill dip as spicy or as mild as you like!
Spice it up by adding extra jalapeño, including the jalapeño seeds in the mix, or adding crushed red pepper flakes to the dip. Prefer a mild dill dip? skip the jalapeño entirely and simply make a lightened up, more traditional dill dip instead. Both versions rock our socks!
