Dill Pickle Dip

Dill Pickle Dip
When I first started dating Ryan it didn't take long for his family to introduce me to dill pickle dip. I'm not sure why I had never had it before but I don't remember trying it until then. I thought it was pretty good and was fine with adopting the dill pickle dip tradition........

That was until I started learning about ingredients! Then that poor little container of fun family tradition became the enemy. I mean those tiny letters on the back of the container was an ingredient list that was way to long with many big words some of which were monosodium glutamate also known as MSG.  Which is a big hit list item on my ingredient list.

Ryan was great to be understanding (his family less so...not that I blame them) but I still felt pretty bad and wondered if I could ever figure out how to make it healthy and still taste like the dip he loved.

Well a few years down my healthify all the foods we love road, it was time to take on the dip! It was so easy and we even liked it better than the old store bought version. I was happy to bring back a fun little tradition!

We have been loving this dip for years now. I always make up a bunch at Christmas and New Years!

Hope you all have a fun and Happy New Year!

How to make your own Dill Pickle Dip
Dill Pickle Dip
1 cup Veganaise (did you know my sister has started making her own, I need to get her recipe)
1/2 cup sunflower seed sour cream (optional, in fact I usually leave it out)
1 Tablespoon Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon Real Salt
1 heaping teaspoon Dill weed (more or less to taste)
1-2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2 medium dill pickles chopped fine

Stir all ingredients together. Great to dip veggies and/or crackers in.  Good with potato chips too but you didn't hear that from me. ;)
