Hi! This is Amy from Little Dairy on the Prairie. Are you ready for a great veggie dip recipe?

On our farm, my garden is exploding with all kinds of fresh veggies: Carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, and more!

I think everyone can admit that veggies are better straight from the garden, and I think we can also admit they are better when they are dunked in some kind of dip! Dill Dip is a game changer when it comes to serving all that fresh produce.

My youngest loves to be in the garden with me… Well, maybe he loves to be in the garden without me even more! He wanders in from the farm several times a day and grabs a little snack. He claims carrots taste better with dirt still on them and doesn’t even bother washing them off in the hose first. He’s pretty healthy so maybe he’s onto something!

  • Add cottage cheese (or Greek yogurt if you’d rather) to a blender.
  • Add sour cream to a blender (I used light), and blend.
  • Next add seasonings: Parsley, fresh dill weed, seasoned salt, pepper, onion powder, and a little tabasco sauce. I also added a little lemon juice.
  • Blend everything. Pour dip into a jar or container and let it hang out in the fridge for a couple of hours. The waiting is the hardest part of making this recipe!

Of course, Dill Dip can be served with veggies or on salad, but it’s also out of this world served with potato chips! I can’t wait for you to try that! It’s another one of those little addictions that might not allow you to eat potato chips by themselves again.

This dip is awesome on top of baked potatoes too. I’m sure you’ll agree that everything is better with fresh dill dip!
