Looking for the best veggie dip ever? This is it! Tangy, creamy and flavorful, it’s delicious with veggies or chips!

Inspired by a recipe from my favorite Instagram account @sharonsaysso, this dip is literally the tastiest veggie dip I’ve ever had.

My kids say it’s “bussin!” – I say it is life changing!

Veggie Dip Ingredients

This veggie dip is beyond simple. The hardest part is grating the onion! (We’ll get to that in a minute.)

The only thing you need to do is combine all the ingredients in a bowl:

  • sour cream
  • mayo
  • dill (fresh or dried)
  • seasoning salt (Redmond brand is my fave)
  • grated onion
  • dry ranch seasoning powder (Hidden Valley or Penzey’s is my go-to)

Most of these ingredients can be adjusted for taste! Add more or less depending on what your heart tells you to do.

The Best Way to Grate an Onion

The dip calls for grated onion. This adds THE MOST AMAZING flavor without distracting chunks of raw onion.

I’ve found the best way to grate an onion (I’m using a shallot here) is to use the small holes of a box grater. Not the spiky holes often found on the back – just the small grating holes.

You can also try a microplane, but I haven’t had great luck using a microplane for grated onion. Blame it on me, the onion or my lousy microplane, but I’m team box grater all the way.

Whisk It and You’re done

You literally whisk all the ingredients together and you’re done!

At this point, feel free to dip in there and take a tastey-taste so you can add more seasonings or salt or whatever the dip needs.

The dip is fairly thick. If you want it thinner, simply whisk in a bit of buttermilk or milk.

Perfect for Veggies…or Chips

This creamy, tangy, super flavorful dip is perfect for veggies. Any kind!

  • snap peas
  • cucumbers
  • celery
  • carrots
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • bell peppers
  • jicama
  • cherry tomatoes

It’s also super tasty with chips, especially wavy potato chips. I like to thin the dip out just a tad bit more for chips, but that’s just a personal preference.

This dip is truly magical. It is really the best veggie dip out there. I thank the grated onion, seasoning salt, and ranch seasonings for that.

SO GOOD. And it lasts quite a while in the fridge (not that you’ll need to worry about that – it’ll be gone in a flash!).

Notes

*Add more or less of any of the ingredients to taste based on your preferences!
Dry Ranch Powder: I’ve made this dip with Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning powder (just the classic flavor) and also Penzey’s ranch seasoning. Both versions are delicious. You can also google many easy recipes for homemade ranch powder, if you want a homemade version. 
Grated Onion: I love the flavor of a shallot in this dip, but any variety of onion will work (yellow, white, red). I’ve found the best method for grating an onion is using the small holes (not the spiky holes) of a box grater (using a microplane hasn’t worked well for me when grating onions). 
Seasoning Salt: different brands of this type of salt will vary in flavor, so use one you like the taste of.
