What is Dill Seasoning?
Dill Seasoning is a savory, herby blend that has notes of citrus. It makes simple vegetables shine, adds dimension to fish, adds freshness to salads, and makes the most incredible vegetable dill dip.
Dill Seasoning is not a seasoning blend that most people purchase often or keep on hand in their pantry. But once you try this simple blend of dried spices, you will never go without it again!

Ingredients in Dill Seasoning
- Dried Dill: Dried Dill Weed packs in a tremendous amount of flavor and is more affordable than using fresh dill. Plus, using a dried herb, allows you to keep this spice blend on hand for months, rather than having to use it immediately.
- Dried Parsley: Believe it or not, dried parsley actually adds quite a bit of flavor and fresh notes to this spice blend.
- Onion Flakes: Dried Onion Flakes add a distinct onion flavor to this spice blend, so be sure to use dried onion flakes, not onion powder for best results.
- Salt: I prefer using kosher salt when I made my spice blends, as kosher salt enhances the flavor of foods instead of making them simply taste salty. For additional flavor, feel free to replace the salt with seasoned salt.
∗ important to remember ∗
For optimum flavor, be sure you use dried herbs that are no more than 6 months old. As spices sit in the pantry, they begin to lose their flavor.

Once combined, Dill Seasoning, just like any homemade spice blend, is best stored in an airtight container, in a cool dark place (like the pantry or spice cabinet) for up to 6 months.

Awesome recipe, very simple! I like the overall flavor, it's perfect for dip, has a smooth taste meaning not too powerful, and you if like it a little more mild it's easy to add more sour cream.
What would you suggest to add to give it a little more potent flavor for say a dry rub or seasoning for chicken wings? Possibly powdered Ranch, powdered vinegar, or maybe dry lemon?
Just a little potent a small kick is all, something that helps grab the taste buds a little, make you go "Mmmm what is that"? but not over the top. Any ideas?
Hi Kris. I am so happy to hear you enjoy the flavor of the dill seasoning. I have not worked with powdered so I can't speak to either of those. I have a recipe for dried ranch seasoning you could try, but I would lean towards using lemon. I prefer adding fresh lemon zest to the seasoning right before cooking the chicken. However, you could experiment with adding the dried lemon. I would start with a small amount, say 1/8-1/4 teaspoon, as it could easily overpower the dill.
Wayyyyy to much salt. Need to buy more sour cream to even it out
Hi Lanice. I am sorry you found this too salty. In the future, I would then suggest using 1/4 teaspoon salt instead of 1/2 teaspoon salt.
I'm so into making my own seasoning - it's one less plastic/ glass bottle to buy on a regular basis and so easy to do. This goes great on fish - thanks for sharing this recipe.
I am so glad you enjoyed this Jane!
How much of the dill seasoning goes into the sour cream and mayo? All in the recipe above?
Do you have a recipe for a larger quantity? 4 or 8 oz.?
Hi Twyla! Yes, the entire recipe goes into 2 cups (or 16 ounces) of dip. Are you looking for a larger recipe for the dip or for the actual mix?
Sorry to not get back sooner. A larger recipe for the actual mix.
Since I love dill dip for my veggies, it would be great to have a pint jar full already mixed up so you could just mix it in the sour cream and go.
Hey Twyla! So you would mix together 1 cup parsley, 1 cup dried onion, 1/3 cup dill, and 1/3 cup salt. For every cup of dip, you would mix in 1 tablespoon of mix. Hope that helps!
