Pickle Dip

Pin It

Let’s pretend for just a moment that I’m sharing this recipe with you for the Superbowl or some other super important get together where there will be many people clamoring for dip.

Let’s pretend that I have never in my life made this in preparation of a night of television watching with just me, my chips, my dip, and an overly full DVR.

You see, people aren’t meant to eat a half of a pound of cream cheese all by themselves in one sitting. So, we’re pretending I didn’t do that. Got it?

I know the two words “pickle” and “dip” don’t necessarily sound like they belong together, but the thing is that this is my most favorite dip of all time. It literally takes about 2 minutes to whip up, it’s utterly fabulous at room temperature (no chilling, no baking, no worrying about the temperature), and did I mention that it’s just plain amazing?

So, go ahead and pretend that you have a house full of people, make some dip, and then pretend like you aren’t the one eating it all yourself. Imagination is good for the soul.

Pickle Dip


8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 to 1 cup dill pickles, depending on how pickly you like things
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
dill, for garnish, if desired
pickle juice


Chop the pickles into very small pieces.
Combine with the cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce until well mixed. Splash in a bit of pickle juice to thin the dip out a bit (around 1 tablespoon, but more is fine, dependent on your taste).
Serve cold or at room temperature with potato chips.

    I think this would be good with the spicy pickles. Also, what about using sour cream instead of cream cheese?

    Could you use dill pickle relish instead of hand chopping them up?

      Hi Lauren!

      I’ve never tried that, but I imagine it would work fine. The relish juice seems a bit thicker than the regular pickle juice, so maybe a splash of vinegar would thin things out a bit.

      Hope that helps!

    Did you use just plain old sliced dill pickles~the kind you put on burgers or did you use whole ones chopped up? Probably makes no difference~just want to make sure I get it right! Thanks!

      I used the pickle chips that you’d use on a burger, but I think any type would work fine!

    This is what I wrote when I pinned it:
    Dill pickle dip recipe. Oh the possibilities! As a spread for burgers or sandwiches. Spread it on Salmon. Put it on toasted bread coins and top with salmon and a sprinkle of dill. Dill pickle mashed potatoes. Mix it with pasta and add chicken or salmon. Add minced garlic to it and maybe green onion. Oh I am way to excited about this dip…

    Pickle Dip….uh, yeah! And what if…just WHAT IF I dipped my Fried Pickles in the Pickle Dip?! I suppose I could eat it w-h-i-l-e on the treadmill, right Ü

    Is the above an actual picture of your dip? Mine did not look so white after I added the Worcestershire…

      Yep, that’s a picture of the same dip. Keep in mind that all monitors are different, so the real life colors aren’t going to match up to the computer always. My dip is pretty white, but it’s not pure white. Color shouldn’t affect the taste either way, though. :)

    I did make this for the Super Bowl, and it has been a struggle to not eat it all before the party! I don’t know if it was the band of pickle or what, but I had to add about 2 tsp. dried dill and 1/4 tsp salt before it tasted really good to me. Nice idea!

    I do something simular to this and everyone asks for it durning get togethers. I don’t mind making it but its such a pain to put together and they don’t look very appitizing. I take deli ham cream cheese and whole dill pickles. I dry the pickles and smother them with the cream cheese then try wrapping the ham around them. Let them get cold and then slicing them. I’ve been wanting to make them as a dip and I just may try this but add chopped ham. Like I said they don’t look appatizing, but they taste delish. By the way i love your site and your recipes.

      I bet this would be great with the meat chopped up in it! :)
