The Fried Dill Pickle Dip has become a favorite all over social media.

I was intrigued by how this dip could be “fried”, when there is no frying involved.

The spices and pickles meld together in creamy perfection.


It’s the perfectly toasted buttery Panko bread crumbs that steals the show.

Here’s my take on this viral sensation.

And, yes, you are going to want to make this all spring and summer long.

So, add it to the short list of your favorite chilled dips!

Here’s my take on the viral social media sensation!.


  • 8 ounces package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered ranch dressing mix
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (I use Tone’s, see notes below)
  • 1 Tablespoon pickle juice
  • 1 cup chopped pickles (Best Made Happy Garlic Dills)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 bundle green onions, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill
  • 3/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons salted butter.
  • additional chopped pickles, dill, and green onions for garnish


  1. Mix all ingredients together except for the panko and butter.
  2. Chill the mixture for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. When ready to serve, melt butter in small shallow skillet.
  4. Add panko crumbs.
  5. Keep heat on low and stir gently until browned.
  6. Allow to cool.
  7. Mix half of the browned panko into the dip.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining panko over the top of the dip.
  9. Garnish with additional chopped pickles, fresh dill, and green onion tops.
  10. Enjoy


  • Do not use a Cajun seasoning with salt listed as the first ingredient – it will be unbelievably salty.
  • I use Tones Cajun Seasoning.
