Questions & Replies

  1. Why does the picture show what looks like chunks of something? Wondering as the recipe says to finely chopped pickles.


  1. 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!
  2. 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!!
  3. 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.
  4. What a dip! It was creamy, flavorful and super easy to whip together. I wish I had it with ruffles as suggested, but next time will definitely try it with those chips instead! A big hit!
  5. Good dip but I am yearning for a little more tang. Maybe I'll add garlic power or double the onions. I used an entire 24 oz jar for the pickles and put the whole thing in the food processor. The dip looked fine, but maybe I'll try to hand chop the pickles to get a burst of pickle in each bite.


  1. 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!


I love to try different recipes on my days off, which are few and far in between. I am always looking for diferent recipes that are heart-healthy and weight-smart.
