My recipe of the day is for  a  spicy dill  pickle dip with the Improv Cooking challenge, where we make recipes combining two  interesting ingredients. for this month  we  are  combining butter and  pickles,  which is great,  because this recipe contains both.

I actually got the idea for this when  I popped in  to  a meat market that had some extra groceries, and we had grabbed up a bag of spicy garlic dill  pickle chips, which were really tasty!

But instead of having  to pop  in  to that market to get those,  as I didn’t really see that chip   brand elsewhere, I set out  to  put together a  dip  that  would give that flavor to plain chips,which every  market has.

The result was  really good, so  now I can have this anytime, as well  as all my friends who live in  places that don’t have that chip. So many chips are regional!

  1. All I can say is wow… I can just imagine how tasty this was! Dill pickle dip is going to be on my menu very, very soon.

  2. This is totally my kind of dip! I can’t wait to have people over for burgers and serve this is an appetizer!

    • It depends how often I need something like a dip- great for entertaining friends or for watching sports on the big tv.

  3. I made this for me, because I love pickles, and took it to a party, not knowing how anyone else was going to like it. It was a huge hit! I used a mix of kosher dills and a spicy dill pickle to make it, and used the juice from the spicier pickles. Excellent, easy dip recipe. Thank you!
