Common Questions

How long will this dip last?

This dip can stay fresh for up to 4-5 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Can I freeze this dip?

We don’t recommend freezing the dip as dairy doesn’t usually freeze well.

Can I make a healthier version of this dip?

You can make a lighter version of this dip by using light mayo and light sour cream.

What other ways can I serve this dip?

You can also enjoy this veggie dip with crackers, pretzels, tortilla chips, or even potato chips. You can also spread it on sandwiches or tortilla pinwheels.

How to substitute dry herbs for fresh herbs?

You’ll need a third amount of fresh herbs to dry herbs. So 1 tablespoon fresh herbs will be equal to 1 teaspoon dry herbs.

    Have a super busy day tomorrow so figured I’d search an easy dip to make ahead of time. Had a taste before putting it in the fridge and it was amazing right after being made! I can’t imagine how yummy it will be tomorrow!

    Hi,
    Can I use plain greek yoghurt instead of sour cream. I seem to always have yoghurt in the house but not sour cream.

    You’ll need a third amount of fresh herbs to dry herbs. So 1 tablespoon fresh herbs will be equal to 1 teaspoon dry herbs.

    This doesn’t read correctly.
    You will need three times the amount of fresh herbs to dry herbs?

      Hi David, that is correct. Since dried herbs are often more potent and concentrated than fresh herbs, you need less. That means the correct ratio is about one to 1.5 tablespoons of fresh herbs to 1 – 1.5 teaspoons of dried herbs

    Hi Natasha, just wanted to let you know that at the start of your post it mentions cream cheese but I don’t see cream cheese listed on the ingredient list.

      Hi Claire, I meant to say sour cream and not cream cheese since there is no cream cheese in this recipe. Thank you for pointing that out. I fixed it!

        I didn’t have lemon juice so subbed with lime juice. Also I went a little heavier on the spices than the recipe called on (my usual technique with recipes!) and was very pleased with the result. Many compliments at the party where this was served! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Hi Karen, it will still be delicious without it but it also adds much flavor to the dip. You can probably just add a little more parsley.
