Recipe Tips & Tricks
- You can serve this dip immediately but I like to pop it back into the fridge before serving.
- This pickle dip can be shaped into a ball and served as a cheese ball.
- Serve with a variety of things to dip, so everyone can try different flavors and texture combos.
- If serving this at a summer potluck, just keep an eye out for it not to get too soft and melty.
- Omit the ham to make it vegetarian.
- Substitute corned beef in place of the ham, to recreate a dill pickle wrap.
- Add some fresh dill on top for presentation.
- Use a mixture of sour cream and cream cheese, for a slightly more tangy flavor.
This pickle dip recipe is usually served with plain chips or crackers. However, you can also serve it with cut veggies, like carrots, celery, and pepper, or even pieces of fresh bread.
You can also serve this tasty dill pickle dip with homemade tortilla chips.
You can store this cream cheese dip for crackers in the fridge for up to 5 days. Just keep it in an airtight container and enjoy it whenever you'd like.
You can use whatever type of pickles you want. I prefer baby dill or pickle spheres, as they provide a bit more crunch and substance than sliced pickles.
