"This is better than any store-bought dip I have ever tried. I use light cream cheese,but feel free to use regular for added richness."

"INCREDIBLY yummy! This is my new favorite dip! I made it three times now. I used Claussen brand hearty garlic dill pickles. I skipped the salt..... it really didn't need any. I did add maybe a 1/4 tsp of sugar just to balance out the vinegariness. I think it's important to note that you need to hand-chop the pickles. The second time I made this, I wanted to save time and I used my food processor for the pickles and onions. It was a wet, soggy dip disaster. Hand chope the pickles! Thanx for sharing this incredible dip!"
"Wow, what a unique, tasty dip! My hubby is a dip lover (is why he married me ;) and he really got into it! Very easy to make, refrigerated for 4 hrs before guests came and dug in...What a HIT! Next time (probably the coming weekend) this will be doubled! Winner winner!!"
"Cann't believe how good this is! LOL. I use Dill Pickle Salad Pieces. Larger than relish. They only had large jars of dill pickles, that I did not want to buy. I added 3 heaping T of the stuff and about 3 T of the juice. I also added a little granulated garlic. I grated the onion on the large hole of my microplane. I think it need to be brought to room temp prior to serving or it's too stiff."
"Great dip! No more buying pre made dips for me! The Pampered Chef food chopper makes chopping the pickles so easy! Knew I was keeping that thing in my cupboard for a reason!"
"This is really good. I made this for DS's sleepover and the boys loved it. They are all pickle lovers so I knew this would be a hit. They dipped in corn chips and bacon flavored crackers."
"Only 1 word AWESOME!!!!!'"
"Wow...I wish that I would've found this sooner. Definitely a keeper. Hand chopped the pickles, which worked great, and food processored the onions. delicious!"
"Love this dip!! I also made this using sourcream and green onion dip in the packet and put a few chopped pickles in....delicious! I can't belive I never thought of putting pickles in dips! Thank you for posting!!"
"This is a super hit with teen-agers. I cheated and used dill pickle relish, but it seemed to work just fine. The dip is super thick so I added some sour cream along with extra pickle juice I robbed from my opened pickle jars the second time I made it.That helped thin it down alot.I have made it with and without the onions-either way the stuff gets gone quick!"
"This was surprisingly AWESOME! I made it in a mini food processor. Chopped up the pickles, then through in some juice, some minced dried onion (all I had on hand) and some dill. Then gave that a couple of whirls in the mini food processor. Then added light cream cheese and processed still smooth. We at it with Ruffles. I love pickles, but this took it to a new level. I told a co-worker about it and she said you could also do this same type of dip with olives instead of pickles. Sounded interesting!"
"So good. I used neufulander cheese I know thats incorrect but the substitute for cream cheese that is lower in fat I think it is 1/3 that of cream cheese. I used 3-4Tbs pickle juice Loved this recipe and gave recipe to another. Sorry can't find the correct word."
"Very tasty dip! I had a large bottle of pickle relish, so used that and left out the onion and salt. It is thick. Might add some milk or additional pickle juice next time, but really enjoyed the taste. It was nice to have something different from the usual ranch dip, yet versatile enough to use with chips, crackers or veggies."
"What great dip and a very unusual dip. This puts a twang in your mouth. I use the large pickles that you find in the extra large jars."
"I made this dip again yesterday, didn't have whole pickles so I was going to use hambuger chips. Mixed all together, 2 hr. Later I tried on a chip. Guess what? they were bread & butter chips,turned out realey good. Now I have to make it both way. You realey need to try."
"Took this dip to my Grandson's birthday party and it was a hit. One guest who is specializing in Culinary Arts asked for the recipe! I doubled the recipe and still the bowl was empty by the time I left. Great on chips or crackers. Thankyou for a new take on dips!"
"This went together quickly and it is very tasty. It's great since I always have all of the ingredients on hand."
"I am just getting into pickles.. Like the dill pickles best as long as they are crisp & cold. Made this dip & it the bowl was empty. I liked the idea of something different for an appetizer than your usual onion or garlic dips. Great recipe"
"I made half a recipe and 2 slices Clausen pickles. Phenomenal is right."
"Great dip! I tried this because *Parsley* mentioned it in a thread on the forums and I thought it sounded good. So glad I tried it! I followed the directions but omited the salt and halved the dill, but I don't think the dill need to be halved. Thanks KP in Canada for posting!"
"So yummy.. I used about 4 tbsp of pickle juice just to get the consistency I wanted.. seemed a bit to think without the extra juice. I'd definitely make this again! Thanks."
