You can mix the body of the dip a day in advance, but make sure the dill is freshly chopped and swirled in at the last minute. You need it to be boldly fragrant. If you want to make the dish a little fancier, go nuts and spoon some salmon caviar on top. — Renee Erickson

Dips are the best, and not just because I like any occasion to serve potato chips. This creamy dip is just so easy to eat, and you can focus on one big flavor: Here, it’s a garden’s worth of dill, garlic, and lemon.

Recipe Testers' Reviews

I'm the person at the party who is completely powerless when there are chips and dip involved. This dill dip with potato chips is the fresher, more delicious version of that addictive snack.

It came together in a snap, and I served it as part of a spread along with Alastair Hendy's asparagus tart for a casual get-together with work colleagues. The yogurt in my fridge was, ahem, a bit past its prime, so I subbed in some fresh labne, and it was perfect. I'd bet you could also swap in other kinds of herbs such as cilantro, parsley, basil, or a mix.

Tasty, quick, and fresh. Serve this five-minute dill dip with homemade or store-bought potato chips, but keep the leftovers! This dill dip is also perfect for dipping fresh-cut vegetables, French fries, or topping a baked potato.
