Once upon time there was a woman named Sharon who was famous for her amazing dill dip. Well, famous in the context of family and friends who thought her dill dip was the best ever! Then out of the blue, a big bad ugly monster reared it’s ugly head which forced Sharon to think a little differently about her relationship with food, including her love of dairy. It was a challenging time, full of success and failure in the kitchen, but always something positive came out of her experiments. And the story about this one in particular, is one worth sharing…
How could she take the dairy out of the dip and still make it delicious. She pondered and dwelled and decided to give it a try.
You can imagine the excitement experienced when she was finally successful with such a recipe! Yes, a Dairy-Free, Oil-Free, Refined-Sugar Free, Gluten-Free AND DELICIOUS HERB DILL DIP.
So without further ado, here is the recipe. Once you’ve tried this, you may never want to have the dairy version ever again! Use this delicious dip on veggies, crackers, as a dressing on a salad, as a condiment on a wrap, on a baked potato, or whatever you choose…
Here are the ingredients you will need:
- 2 cups of Sharon’s vegan sour cream (recipe is below**)
- 2 tsp. dried dill weed (or 2 TBSP fresh dill)
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 tsp. onion powder

In a bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir with a spoon. This delicious dip will last in a sealed glass container in the refrigerator for about a week. Enjoy this amazing vegan dip!
** Vegan sour cream recipe:
- 2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight in water
- ½ – 1 cup filtered water
- 2 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar
- 4 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 ¼ tsp. sea salt
Drain the cashews and put them in a high-speed blender. Add ½ cup of water and the remaining ingredients. Process on high speed until creamy, “sour-cream” like consistency. You can add up to ½ cup additional water, if needed. Stop the blender and scrape the container as often as needed to ensure everything is mixed properly and the resulting texture is smooth.
Back to the story…everyone lived happily ever after. The End!
