- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
- 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1 teaspoon Beau Monde seasoning
- In a bowl, mix all ingredients well.
- Refrigerate at least an hour or two before serving.
- Serve with lots of raw vegetables for dipping. It’s also great served with chunks of my Beer Bread.
- Keeps in the fridge for about a week!
- You can mix the dry ingredients together and keep them in a jar for several months. I usually double or triple the batch of dry ingredients. That way you can whip up the dip in minutes. Just add 2 tablespoons of the dry seasoning mix to 1 cup of mayo and 1 sour cream. Refrigerate before serving. Want to make a smaller batch. Mix one tablespoon of the seasoning in 1/2 cup each of mayo and sour cream.
- You can use light mayo and light sour cream if you like. You can also use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
- It’s best to use fresh dried dill. It should still be green. If it’s been in your spice pantry for more than 6 months and is more brown then green, it may be time to buy more.

This makes a great gift in a jar!
- I use equal parts dried minced onion and dill. For 1 cup dried minced onion and 1 cup dill weed, add 1/3 cup parsley and 1/3 cup Beau Monde or garlic salt.
- Mix together and place in jars.
- Attach a label that reads “Dill Dip Mix: To prepare add 3 tablespoons of the dry mix to 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup sour cream. Mix together and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Serve with fresh veggies for dipping.”
Love this! Saw you on The Jason show and started following you. I make this dill dip recipe several times a month! My husband takes fresh veggies to work to snack on and a little dill dip to go along is a treat:)
Beau Monde is Spice Islands, but if you can’t find it McCormick’s Bon Appetit will work. I do prefer the Beau Monde better. I love this recipe, it has been around a long time. I have made it with dried minced onion, but it’s better with fresh, 1 Tablespoon.
So glad you like you love this dip! I do do! And I agree with you on the Beau Monde. Love the idea of adding minced fresh onion instead of the dried. -Amy
I was so happy to see your segment on Twin Cities Live. I used to use Beau Monde but I haven’t been able to find it in stores for years. Where do you get it? Dill Dip isn’t the same without it.
