My DD is always aware of the latest trends in food and she told me that "this year's" appetizer was dill pickle dip. I took it to a do last night. It was very good although I'm not sure it is a "stand alone" dip (i.e. that is the only appetizer) but it was good as a part of an assortment of dips and nibbles. It certainly is easy and with a block of cream cheese in the fridge, you can make it quickly. It is best served with Ruffles type potato chips, however.
Dill Pickle Dip
8 ounces of cream cheese at room temperature
2 dill pickles chopped finely
2 T. dill pickle juice
2 t. dill weed
Mix all together, cover and chill at least two hours before serving. Let come to room temperature before serving.

Ooooh....I bet green olive dip would be better! I love olives! I always run olives through the KitchenAid food processor as I'm grating cheese for pimento cheese. That and some of the olive brine gives an extra flavor to pimento cheese.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
This is nice and easy. Thanks for sharing.
I've spread cream cheese dip on whole pickles (Claussens) and wrapped a slice of ham around the pickles, chill, then slice the pickles.
Makes for a pretty appetizer. Can't go wrong with a pickle and cream cheese IMO
There is also a dip I've had like the ham/pickle rollups.
dried beef, chopped
pickle juice to thin a little
Martha, the dip sounds good! I have made a recipe similar to the one you posted, but I'm pretty sure I added some diced onion, and less dill weed, if my memory is correct. I haven't made the dip in over a year, so I'm not sure of the exact amount of onion and dill I added. But after seeing your thread about the dip, I'm going to have to make this again. Martha, thank you for sharing this recipe!
Sherry, since you love olives as much as I do, I thought I'd share the following link to make cream cheese and olive party sandwiches. The mixture is great to use as a dip, and serve with crackers, if your not in the mood for tea sandwiches. The lady who posted this recipe, is an amazing cook by the way, and I enjoy her recipes. My daughter and I love this recipe, and we enjoy the mixture on crackers as well as in sandwiches.
