Sweet, a bit of sour, and full on delicious flavor, this dill pickle dip will be perfect at your next BBQ party or gathering.
I love the summer time. Food cooked on the grill, the time spent at the lake, and BBQ’s with friends. Enjoying good food with family and friends is probably my favorite part of it, to be honest.
When we go to a BBQ, or host one, serving lots of creative finger foods is on the list. No one wants to walk around having to use a knife and fork for each bite, right? So, we keep the list simple-burgers, hot dogs, the occasional rack of ribs or grilled chicken. Easy enough, right?
However, when we want to be really creative, this dill pickle dip spread on French bread is on the menu. The best part is that you can serve it two different ways. You can make a crostini of sorts, by spooning the dip on the bread slices beforehand, or you can serve it in a bowl, with bread slices perfect for dipping.

What if I don’t like Dill pickles?
Understandable, right? Not everyone likes the bite of the dill pickle. If you want to, you can sub out sweeter bread and butter, or baby gherkins for this recipe. It will have a different flavor profile, but will be awesome!
Can I sub out turkey bacon?
Absolutely! For those who don’t eat pork for any reason, cooking up turkey or beef bacon to a crispy finish, then chopping it up is a great way to still enjoy this recipe.
Do I have to use French bread?
While that is my favorite way to serve this dip, you can also use crackers, pitas, or any other bread type product to serve this. Gluten free crackers, or wasa bread work great as well!
