How to Make Low-Carb Dill Pickle Dip
Whip up a batch for your next party, or keep a bowl in the fridge, so you’re ready to dip anytime you’d like a quick side for your sandwich or as a quick snack. The simple ingredients can be found easily at any grocery store.
Start by whisking together the sour cream, cream cheese and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Next, add the rest of the ingredients. Stir everything together until everything is evenly distributed throughout with a rubber spatula.
You are then going to place it in an airtight container and refrigerate the dip for at least two hours or overnight before serving. It tastes even better the next day! You can then set out with a platter of veggies, pork rinds, parmesan crisps, and gluten-free, low-carb crackers to serve.
How to Store this keto dill pickle dip

Is Dill Pickle Dip Keto?
Yes, this simple dip is suitable for a keto lifestyle. With only 2.6g net carbs per serving, it’s a great low-carb option
What’s the difference between fresh dill and dried dill?
Fresh dill has a more intense flavor and scent than dried dill. Fresh dill can also provide more texture to dishes, while dried dill tends to break down and dissolve more quickly in recipes. Due to this, fresh dill is often used for cold recipes such as dips or salads, whereas dried dill may be better suited for hot dishes or those with liquid ingredients, such as sauces. However, I like the flavor combination of using both for this recipe.
What do I serve with creamy low-carb dill pickle dip?
This creamy low-carb dip is a great accompaniment to a variety of dishes. You could serve it with crunchy fresh vegetables such as celery, carrot sticks, red peppers, green bell peppers or cucumber slices. I like to serve it with small crispy pieces of bacon!
It also pairs well with cut-up chicken wings and other proteins, as well as low-carb tortilla chips and low-carb crackers. So many companies are making low-carb crackers now. I like to buy them from Aldi or these almond flour crackers from Amazon. For something more substantial, try serving it with a side of roasted cauliflower or zucchini fries.
Easy dill pickle dip is not only a tasty dip but an excellent option for the keto lifestyle. It makes a delicious appetizer that’s both healthy and delectable. Enjoy the easy dip as a snack, appetizer, or light meal! It’s sure to be a huge hit every time you serve it.
