Homemade dips take just minutes to make and use up all that herbal goodness just waiting in your spice cupboard like this sour cream dip with onion and dill.

Sour Cream and Dill Dip with carrots

We are big dippers around here. Whether it’s hummus, salsa, or homemade sour cream dip like this onion dip, we like to stick small bits of food into a homemade dip and eat them. The carrot, tortilla chip, or potato chip acts as a vehicle for all kinds of deliciousness.

It’s so amazingly easy to make your own homemade dips. It’s really just as simple, if not simpler, than buying a packaged mix. This dill dip comes together easily and is just fantastic for fresh vegetable dippers. But, don’t stop there, the sour cream can be a great sauce for grilled fish or baked potatoes as well.

    This does sound good. Have you done much with Greek yogurt? My sister-in-law uses it for things like this and just loves it. Do you think it would work for this? Any pros and cons that you know of for using Greek yogurt? Thanks!

    I made this last night and my husband and I loved it. We served it with veggies and Ritz crackers. The toddlers didn’t care for it, but there’s not much that they like these days.

    I don’t know what I did wrong. It came out terrible. Couldn’t taste anything but overpowering onion. It was in desperate need of salt. I hate to throw it out and be wasteful. ?

    • Possible that some of the seasonings were a little old? Just season to taste, adding more salt or other spices until you like it. If you don’t want to use it as a dip, you can also use it to top potatoes or stir into mashed potatoes.

    I made this for my family’s stay-at-home New Year’s Eve with Siggi’s brand nonfat plain skyr (Icelandic yogurt) which is thick and rich feeling. It is delicious, with just a bit of tang.
