Dill Pickle Dip

Pickles. 

Oh goodness, how I love them.  And the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, my little man is pickle obsessed too.  Salty, sweet, sour; it doesn't matter we're a fan of them all. 

Fried dill pickles are on of my all time favorite foods.  I mean, seriously, what's not to love about them?  Tart, tangy, crunchy pickles coated in a salty, crispy batter and dipped in cool ranch.  I love those things.
But, during the summer months, the last thing any of us really want to do is stand over a huge pot of bubbling oil in the 100 degree temps frying anything.  Soooo...what's a fried pickle lover to do?  Whip up a dip that will hit all those notes without all that work.

This dill pickle dip is just the ticket.

A mix of tangy cream cheese, rich Greek yogurts and creamy mayonnaise is whipped together and then seasoned with garlic, dill weed, a splash of dill pickle juice and diced dill pickles.  This stuff is amazing.  Cool, creamy, and crunchy.  Swipe a crispy, salty potato chip through it and you've got the perfect balance of flavors. 
This dip comes together in no time at all and is incredibly addicting.  It could also double as a spread for a burger.  It can be thrown together right before your cookout or made ahead of time and the flavors are given a chance to develop and enhance.  I think it's safe to say I've found one of my go to dips for the summer season.
