Dill is an often under-utilized herb because it is most commonly associated with pickles and not much else. But in cultures outside of America, it is widely used in a variety of dishes.

Dill Dip Seasoning Blend

Dill is originally from Germany and is best used fresh since it loses it’s flavor quickly. Fortunately, if you’re unable to get your hands on fresh herbs, freeze-dried is the next best thing.

Dill Dip Seasoning Blend

We always keep freeze-dried dill, chives, and red onions on hand (though, fresh dill dip is best). This makes it easy to toss them into soups, salad dressings, and dips without having to worry about having the fresh stuff on hand and it cuts prep time significantly.

Dill Dip Seasoning Blend

This dill dip is our favorite when added to sour cream and used as a chip dip. If you don’t (or can’t) eat dairy, it’s equally delicious when mixed into our Paleo Lime Mayo (dill dip with mayo) and used as a spread on a lettuce wrap sandwich. Other options include: yogurt dill dip, dill dip with cream cheese.

Fresh Dill Dip Blend

Don’t buy those packets of hidden valley dill dip or any of the other options at the store. They’re mass produced and you can never be too sure what the ingredients actually are. When you create your own option it’ll store well and you’ll always know exactly what you’re eating.

    I grow and dry my own chives, onions and dill. Just wondering if they will work in this recipe and last as long in fridge? Thanks!

    1. I’m sure this would work with fresh ingredients, though I’m not sure what the storage times would be in the fridge. If you don’t plan on using it within a week or so, I’d suggest making a small batch so it doesn’t go bad, just in case.
