Dill Pickle Dip for Vegetables or Chips (both options are amazing!)


While I was brainstorming ideas of what to make for a family reunion we were hosting, I came across a 'fad' recipe all over social media.  It was a dill pickle dip (which is actually a rather old recipe dip) but had been re-discovered and is currently (apparently) popular again.  I don't spend much time on social media at all - like - almost none at all - and even I managed to see a post with this one mentioned so I assume it must be popular right now.   

I made a single batch of it last week because I thought it sounded really, really good.  And it was.  We  ate it with cucumber slices at that time; and then I made a triple batch for the reunion this weekend.  It was served at two different meal times with both cold, sliced cucumbers and celery sticks as well as regular potato chips, and wow!  It was really well received both ways.  

I am going to be totally honest here and admit that I ate about 2 cups of it myself with potato chips as my 'lunch' because it was so good, it was all I wanted to eat... and couldn't stop.  YUM.

Dill Pickle Dip
for dipping chips or vegetables

1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened in the microwave
1/2 c sour cream
2 T dill pickle juice from the jar
1 t garlic powder
1 T fresh dill
1 c chopped dill pickles

Mix the cream cheese and sour cream with an electric mixer, stir in the rest of the ingredients and chill at least 2 hours until needed.  Really good if you can chill for at least 4-6 hours or more.
