This salami dill pickle dip is reminiscent of pickle rolls! This tasty, scoopable version has delicious, easy and so addicting! Pickle fans, grab your crackers, and dig in!
One of my favorite finger foods that I enjoyed growing up was salami rolls. But back then, the rolls were filled with green onions instead of pickles. Maybe you were different, but as a kid green, onions were like eating grass (although I’d probably choose the grass over the green onions).
Pickles would have been so much better. I have always loved pickles and their juice. I have been known to down an entire jar of pickle juice. While I’ve abandoned the practice of drinking pickle juice as an adult, I do love to add dill pickles into recipes!
Aside from the taste, the best part of this dip is the ease and the time it takes to put together. It will only take you about 5 minutes to throw this appetizer together and everyone will LOVE it!
How Do I Make This Dill Pickle Dip?
To start this recipe, make sure you are using softened cream cheese. You will need one brick. I like to leave it on the counter for 30 minutes or so, but you could microwave your cream cheese (without the packaging) for 15 -30 seconds or just until soft.
Place your cream cheese in a bowl and add a little mayo. The mayo will soften the tang from the cream cheese as well as make it easier to blend.
You could use Greek yogurt or even sour cream if you prefer.
Next comes the salami. I added a good 1 ½ cups of chopped hard salami to this dip. You could add more or less of course. You can also you Genoa salami or any other cured salami.
To the salami, I add about a ⅓ cup of dill pickles. These are finely chopped pickles. Again, feel free to add more. I prefer to keep the pickles small because not everyone loves to have big chunks of pickles on their crackers
Season the dip with minced garlic and an Italian seasoning blend. Garlic powder can be used in place of the minced garlic.
If you cannot find a seasoning blend, a little oregano, basil, or of course fresh dill would be fine. A pinch of black pepper is great!
What To Serve With Pickle Dip?
This dip is thick and chunky so I would use something sturdy like a cracker or pita chip.
A thick wavy potato chip would work but I wouldn’t use something like a Lay’s potato chip, they would break.
You could also serve veggies with this dip,
How Long Is Pickle Dip Good For?
You can keep this dip stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
This dip can be left on the counter for about 2 hours. Beyond that, however, be aware that bacteria can begin to form. Refrigerate the dip after 2 hours and bring it out when you are ready to consume it again.
