TV Tuesday #35: Holiday Appy: Sour Cream Dill Dip in 5 Minutes

I love simple! A few ingredients and an outstanding taste, what more can you ask for in a recipe?

The first time I tried this dip (my friend made some for our camping trip) I was smitten. When I asked for the recipe, she said there really wasn’t one. It was a few ingredients mixed together and it took less than 5 minutes to make. I was floored.

“Really?” I said. I couldn’t believe the simplicity and the taste!

So what better time to introduce this lovely dip now, since  entertaining is at it’s peek during the holidays. Take those expensive store bought dips out of your shopping cart and save yourself some money while feeling good that you’re not serving up any preservative, chemicals or “natural flavors” in your dip.

In today’s video, I’m also sharing my favorite entertaining tip for serving veggies and dip and why. I’ll also be sharing a great addition to this dip next week to create a completely different appy, using this dip as the core ingredient.


Homemade 5 Minute Dill Dip

  • 1 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill (fresh dill really makes the difference here)
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Do you have a recipe that you LOVE to serve in a JAR? Let me know what it is in the comments below!


I’m sharing this with Mangia Monday, Monday Mania, My Meatless Monday, Slightly Indulgent Tuesday, Tasty Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Allergy Free Wednesday, and Real Food Wednesday.

    It would take me 5 minutes just to chop the dill, and even more to finely chop the green onions!!

      Hi Rebecca, If the chopping part is a stumbling block for you there are two things I suggest. First practice. Before you know it you’ll be fast like a ninja. Second, put the dill and green onion in a mini 2 or 3 cup chopper/food processor, a pulses of the blade and voila!

    France, you are hilarious!! Love this vid! And the jar idea really is great. I can’t honestly think of anything that I have served in a jar before….I’ve done shots of soup, though!

      That’s a good idea Koko. Soup! Oooh, like gazpacho in the summer at a bbq. That would be adorable.

    France, not only is your food presentation of the dip beautiful, I love the video! I adore recipes that feature fresh whole foods that are easy to make. Thanks for sharing and you know I’m making this yummy dip soon. I might have to do it with goat cheese since I have that right now. YUM!

    Sounds great! I don’t have sour cream, but plenty of homemade yogurt. Do you think that would a good sub idea?

    • France Morissette December 14, 2012 at 7:44 am #

      Absolutely Tiffany.

    Such a clever idea…I love it.

    I love the presentation of these! I’ll totally be trying this with greek yogurt instead of sour cream!

    Dill makes everything special and this is such a refreshing way to use it.

    • France Morissette December 19, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

      It does, doesn’t it Chaya. We had some in our salad last night and it was delicious.

    This is tagged as vegan and it is not. Sour cream is dairy and vegan does not include dairy.

      Thanks for catching that Sandra. It must have been tagged in error. Thanks for taking the time to let me know :)

      Thanks for letting me know. On the back end it is not, but for some reason in the listings (what you see) it is…? All the recipes are coming up as vegan. Most posts are coming up as vegan even though they are not tagged that way. Your comment has brought this to our attention so thank you. I’ll have to get our developer to look into it. In the meantime, if you are searching specifically for vegan recipes, head to recipes, then click on vegan. Those listings are coming up correctly.
