Recipe origins

Some older versions of this recipe include 1 teaspoon of beau monde instead of seasoned salt. Beau monde is a seasoning that primarily consists of celery powder, allspice, ground bay leaves, and onion powder.

If you’d like, substitute beau monde for the seasoned salt. You can find it in the spice aisle at your local grocery store, or you can make your own beau monde seasoning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is dill dip gluten free?

Dill dip generally does not have any gluten-containing ingredients. However, check the label of your seasoned salt to make sure (most brands don’t contain gluten, but it’s worth checking).

What can I substitute for seasoned salt?

To make your own seasoned salt, mix together ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, and a pinch of sugar. Use the mixture in place of one teaspoon of seasoned salt.

Can I freeze dill dip?

I don’t recommend freezing dill dip—the ingredients will separate and the mixture will not be as creamy after defrosting.
