Sour Cream Vegetable Dip

When you’re throwing a party, a good dip is a must-have. Some of our personal favorites are this delicious sausage cheese dip and our ground beef taco dip. I always know that when I serve them, they’ll be a big hit.

As easy as those are, sometimes I just need a simple dip recipe with no cooking involved. That’s why this sour cream veggie dip is our go-to recipe. It’s beyond easy. Just throw a few ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and you’ve got a tasty cold dip that’s the perfect companion for your favorite veggies.

Homemade Veggie Dip Recipe Variations and Add-ins

  • Add some heat: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce to give your dip a spicy twist.
  • Other fresh herbs: Feel free to add other herbs like chives, basil, or cilantro to add extra flavor to the dip.
  • Cheese: Mix in grated Parmesan or shredded cheddar cheese for a cheesy dip.
  • Onion dip: Add finely chopped green onions or a teaspoon of onion powder to give it more of a sour cream and chive dip flavor.
  • Yogurt: If you want a tangier flavor, instead of sour cream, you can make veggie dip with plain Greek yogurt in its place.
  • Sundried tomatoes: Finely chopped sundried tomatoes for a flavorful burst of sweet and tangy flavor.
  • Dried seasoning: If you want to add extra zing to this easy dip, skip the salt and add about a tablespoon of dried ranch dressing mix.

What to Dip with Sour Cream Dip

One of the things that makes this the best veggie dip is that it tastes great with so many different dippers. From fresh veggies to chips, these are just a few of our favorites:

  • Raw vegetables: celery, baby carrots, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, radishes, mushrooms, bell peppers, and fresh snap peas.
  • Cooked vegetables: sweet potato fries, roasted Brussel sprouts, bacon-wrapped asparagus
  • Chips & crackers: tortilla chips, pita chips, potato chips, pretzel sticks, crackers
  • Bread: breadsticks, toasted baguette slices, and sourdough bread chunks.

Tips & Tricks

  • Make the sour cream dip recipe ahead of time and let it chill in the refrigerator overnight to give the flavors time to meld together. The best part is that this will also save you time when you’re preparing for the party.
  • Scoop out the center of a sourdough bread loaf and fill it with the dip for a fun presentation. Break the extra bread into small chunks for dipping.
  • For an even more unique presentation, serve your veggie dip in a hollowed-out bell pepper.
