This Homemade Dill Seasoning is a perfect blend of seasonings that add a herbaceous flavor to dips, soups, or fish.
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.
How to Store Dill Seasoning
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.
