Recipe Ingredients

It only takes 6 ingredients to make this delicious party dip!

  • Panko breadcrumbs: Topping this dip with toasted panko adds the crispy texture and crunch you get from fried pickle chips.
  • Butter: You can use salted or unsalted butter. This is to mix with the breadcrumbs so they get golden brown.
  • Cream cheese: The creamy and tangy flavor of the cream cheese pairs great with the ranch flavor. Allow it to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to soften so it combines well with the other ingredients.
  • Sour cream: I like adding sour cream because it isn’t as thick as cream cheese so it helps to make the pickle dip smooth.
  • Pickles and pickle juice: I use chopped pickles and pickle juice in this recipe. The addition of the pickle juice thins out the dip and reinforces the dill pickle flavor.
  • Ranch dressing mix seasoning: This is my favorite way to add ranch flavor to dips and other foods!
