My mom taught my sister, brother and I plenty of fantastic recipes, but this one just might be the very best of them. It is a great substitute for the ever-present ranch dip, but is just as simple to mix together.
- Cream cheese; 8oz block at room temperature
- Mayonnaise; 1/2 cup
- Green Onion; 4 to 5 stems finely chopped
- Dried Dill; 1 to 2 tablespoons
We like a very generous amount of dill, but you can start with one tablespoon and see what you think. Simply mix together all the ingredients with a hand mixer. Keep in mind if the cream cheese is not room temperature it often does not mix very smoothly. The flavors intensify when this is made in advance. Overnight is usually ideal.
You can serve dill dip with anything, but our family tradition is pretzels and/or carrot sticks.
