I love pickles (and cream cheese) so knew I would love this dip. I halved the recipe and used homemade refrigerator pickles (the larger amount). The pickles added plenty of salt so I skipped the additional salt and also skipped the additional pickle juice (the juice created from chopping the pickles seemed to be enough to me). Otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
Went well with crackers/chips, but really excellent on a bagel. You might not think of pickles and cream cheese for your bagel, but if you love pickles, you will love the combo. I used fresh dill and followed the other reviewer and left out the salt. I can see why this made it into her best of the year cookbook. A similar one made it into mine, and it reminds me of it: Dill Pickle Dip.....yum!!.
Yummy with barbequed sun chips! Thanks! Made for the Best of 2013 game.
