Pickle Wrap Dip

Pickle Wrap Dip is a simple, classic appetizer that is making itself known across the country. And rightfully so. It’s absolutely delicious! Especially if you love pickles!

Ask any Midwesterner about Pickle Wrap Dip and they will tell you. This dip brings a little bit of nostalgia with it, just like my chipped beef dip, my dried beef cheese ball, and my beef jerky dip!

This savory dip is easy to make, comes together in the matter of minutes, and is full of flavor.

Ingredients Needed

Cream Cheese – This recipe uses the full fat version but feel free to use reduced or low fat, or even fat free cream cheese. Just be sure to soften it close to room temperature so its easily mixed.

Sour Cream – Full fat, reduced fat, or fat free works just fine for this recipe. If you don’t like sour cream you can use plain yogurt. Or you can leave the sour cream out all together. Add a few tablespoons of pickle juice to loosen the dip.

Dill Pickles – For me, the more sour the pickle the better but use your favorite. Bread and butter pickles work great in this recipe too.

Ham – Grab your favorite ham from the deli and chop it up fine. You can also use dried or chipped beef, corned beef, or even salami.

How long does it last?

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Can I freeze it?

If you are planning on freezing, I would recommend using full fat cream cheese to make this recipe as low-fat tends to turn watery when frozen then thawed.

When frozen, dip can last for 1-2 months in the freezer, however; for best flavor I would recommend using within 2 weeks of freezing.

Can I use relish instead of diced pickles?

Yes, dill pickle relish can be used instead of chopping your own pickles.

Serving Suggestions

Pickle dip can be served with your favorite cracker, however; I find buttery crackers or crisp veggies taste best.

Where do pickle wraps come from?

While the exact origins of pickle wraps is hard to pin down, the roots can be traced to the Midwest region of the country.

The Midwest has a heavy German and Scandinavian population and this appetizer is a play on dishes found in the homelands. So, either of these people could have been the originator of the pickle roll ups.

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  • If it is too thick, thin it out with a little pickle juice.
  • If you prefer not to chop your own pickles, dill pickle relish will work just as well.
  • Let cream cheese come to room temperature prior to making to ensure easy incorporation of all ingredients.
  • If you are not a fan of deli ham; chipped beef also known as Buddig Dried Beef, corn beef, or salami work great in this recipe as well.
  • Sour cream is not necessary to make this dip, however; it does add a softness to the cream cheese that makes it easier to spread on crackers without breaking them.
  • This is a great make ahead dip. Preparing in advance will allow the flavors to meld together and if stored properly in an airtight container will last for days in the fridge.
