Curry Dill Dip

Here’s an easy, flavorful dip recipe to serve with vegetables: Curry Dill Dip

Curry Dill Dip

This has been my Mother’s go-to dip to make for as many years as I can remember.  She made it for all of the holiday parties she hosted when I was growing up, and she continues to make it today.  That flavor of dill and curry is permanently imprinted in my mind from frequent tastings!  I’m sure she got this Curry Dill Dip recipe from somewhere, but its origin is not known.

Curry Dill Dip Recipe

When I worked as a caterer back in my college days, I prepared zillions of vegetable platters.  The secret to keeping the veggies from drying out when you make the platter ahead:  wet some paper towels and wring out slightly; lay the paper towels on top of the veggies and wrap the tray with plastic wrap.  That’ll keep your veggies fresh and bright!

My Mom always uses dried herbs to make this dip, and it tastes perfectly delicious that way… but since I love fresh dill so much, that’s what I choose to use.

This dip is really so simple and delicious. Several hours of chilling allows the flavors to come out even more.  It’s a great dip to bring out for football games or holiday gatherings.  Enjoy!

    I would never have thought of putting curry and dill together. Thanx for that combo. I’m dying to try it.

    Great tip about keeping the veggies fresh – one I will remember for future use.

    I love a good dip – dips are a food group aren’t they?
