If you’re looking for the ultimate veggie dip recipe, look no further. This vegetable dip is loaded with flavor and will quickly become your new go-to recipe!

This Really Good Veggie Dip is actually THE BEST vegetable dip!

Really Good Veggie Dip:

Colorful and crunchy vegetable platters are a popular party appetizer today. Although veggies are tasty on their own, serving them with dip takes them to another level. Today, I’m excited to share this easy Veggie Dip.

If you ever wondered, “What can you dip vegetables in?” This veggie dip is a winner!

This recipe comes from a deli in my hometown. I’ve been coveting their homemade vegetable dip for years and would purchase a container of it anytime I needed a good vegetable dip. It tastes so good!

I tried various recipes at home, but nothing could beat it. It is so good that whenever my sister-in-law visited St. Marys, she would buy multiple containers for herself and her friends. Kids love it too!

This Really Good Veggie Dip is actually THE BEST vegetable dip!

For years I assumed the recipe was a closely guarded secret. However, one day as I was chatting with the cashier, the topic of the recipe came up and, without hesitation, she gave it to me! I was shocked.

What I assumed to be top secret was now in my hands. No longer did I have to purchase this magical veggie dip: finally, I could make it at home.

Side note: I learned a big lesson that day. Always be kind to EVERYONE. You never know how or when your kindness will be returned. (That person just might gift you with the recipe for your favorite veggie dip!)

My favorite (and in my opinion the very best) veggie dip!

While I’ve had the recipe for a few months now, I’m finally getting around to sharing it with all of you. Yesterday, I taught you how to make a Sausage and Pepper Sheet Pan Dinner from your vegetable tray leftovers, so today seemed like the perfect time to circle back with the dip recipe.

As many of you know, I have a bunch of recipes with “Really Good” in their titles. In my opinion, these recipes ARE the best of the best even though I don’t call them that. This veggie dip is in that category.

My favorite (and in my opinion the very best) veggie dip!

Let’s whip up this recipe!

Not only is it “Really Good,” but it’s crazy easy to make, and you probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. I’ve provided a full ingredient list with step-by-step instructions, video, and nutrition facts (including calories) in a printable recipe card below.

First, gather your veggie dip ingredients. You will need: 

  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 (16 ounce) container mayo / mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onions
  • 1 tablespoon Lawry’s seasoned salt*
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3-4 drops Frank’s Red Hot sauce

Just toss them into a bowl, mix them up, and your dip is ready! – I do recommend refrigerating the dip for about two hours to rehydrate the herbs and let the flavors meld.

Serve it up on a platter with all of your vegetables!

    Freakin’ LOVE this stuff. Best vegetable dip. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  • Mary Tipton at

    I used 1 tablespoon of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt (the original), and it was way too salty. Even when I added the remaining sour cream and mayo (which cut the salt in half), it was too salty. Unedible. Do you think there are different products called Lawry’s Seasoned Salt?

    • Judy at

      Use the low sodium season salt

  • Sarah Rogers at

    This this my new go-to vegetable dip. I won’t make or serve anything else. I see why you love it so much! Yummy!

  • Peggy Springer at

    I made this dip this evening for a party tomorrow evening. I followed exact directions, but it is extremely salty! I realize that the flavors have to meld together and they should overnight. But, what if they don’t?! How can I fix this without having to waste all of my ingredients? Help!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It is a saltier dip. You can add in more sour cream and mayo.

      xo Michael

    • Carmen at

      Toooo much salt
      I use 1 teaspoon instead of 1 tablespoon
      Great now
      Ruined a 5 recipe batch for a huge wedding.. threw away

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        Thank you for your feedback. As explained in the post, I used the original recipe from the local store where I found it. (I personally love it as is!) However, I have made a note in the recipe about the saltiness of the dip and to adjust as desired.

        Also, instead of throwing the dip away, you could add a bit more sour cream and / or mayo to balance things out.

        xo Michael

        Do you have the calorie count for this dip!

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        I don’t currently calculate calories for recipes, however I’m hoping to add that to the blog soon.

        As made above for the entire batch its 4186 calories. 38.1g carbs. 447.5g fat. 1g protein.

        2tbsp servings would be approx 130.8 calories per serving with 32 servings per batch. And 14g of fat per serving, and just over 1 carbs 😉

      You might find this an interesting story. Back in the 70’s, there was a caterer in my town who had this same recipe and she considered it top secret and would never share it with anyone. One day an out of town friend shared this recipe with me and I had it at all my social functions. A neighbor asked me how I got this recipe from the caterer and I said I didn’t, that a friend gave it to me. She said it was the caterer’s secret dip recipe and I should be careful not to share it with others in my social group lest I offend the caterer! I love this recipe and always enjoy making it!

    What brand of seasoned salt did you use? I never use it and I assume flavors differ from
    Brand to brand.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I use Lawry’s. 🙂

    This dip looks delicious – so fresh and creamy! I made a big veggie platter for my annual Christmas party, and decided I wanted to hollow out a cabbage for the dip. It was so hard and did not look like I knew what I was doing! 🙂 Have you ever done a tutorial on hollowing out a cabbage? I could use some expert tips and your looks gorgeous. What tools did you use, etc. Someone said it is like scooping out a pumpkin but I found the cabbage much more difficult (the layers came apart jaggedly for one thing). Thanks for all your wonderful posts!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Lori, I didn’t even think to share a tutorial of that. Great suggestion. I’ll see what I can come up with. However, I just used a sharp knife to cut a circle in the cabbage and then uses a spoon to take out the section I wanted.

      xo Michael
