Dill Dip & Veggie Platter

So, Delaney is obsessed with dips and sauces. He thinks there should be a dip or a sauce for pretty much anything. I like them too, but I’m not quite as obsessed as he is. And he has been asking me to make a Dill Dip for a while now. And I thought there’s no better weekend than Super Bowl weekend to make a dip!

So today I’m sharing a really easy recipe for a light and delicious dill dip. This is so simple guys, seriously. There’s only a few ingredients and this Dill Dip is delicious with veggies, crackers, or chips. My secret ingredient is Meyer lemon paste. Most dill dip recipes call for lemon juice, but I feel like that can make the dip runny in order to get the right flavor. I recently discovered If & When Moroccan Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste (I made a Lemon Coffee Cake over Christmas with it!). And this lemon paste is a concentrated lemon flavor that is perfect for something like this where you want a punch of flavor, but not very much liquid. Get the recipe below for my easy Dill Dip.

Tips for Making the Best Dill Dip

• Use dried dill, not fresh. The dried dill has more flavor for less, so that’s why I use dried dil in this recipe.

• If you don’t have lemon paste, then you can use lemon juice instead. You’ll have to use more lemon juice than lemon paste as it’s not as concentrated, so start out with 1 to 2 teaspoons and add more if desired.

• Make this dip ahead of time and store in the fridge until ready to use.

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
