I love a good pickle dip! I made this Fried Pickle Ranch Dip for a recent teacher gathering and we ate almost every bite. My hubby finished it off when I got home. This dip is easy and has lots of flavor. We ate it so fast ....I didn't get a picture. I plan to make it again this weekend and I will snap a picture. I got the recipe from Lolo Home Kitchen.
I keep a container of Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch Dressing mix at the house - I just used this. It wasn't very spicy but had a ton of flavor.
Fried Pickle Ranch Dip - adapted from Lolo Home Kitchen
1 block cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 packet (1 ounce) powder Ranch dressing mix (I used spicy Ranch)
2 tsp minced garlic
1 small jar (10 oz) of dill pickle relish
1/2 cup Panko crumbs (I used gluten free and they were great)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
In a medium mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, sour cream, ranch mix, garlic and relish. Mix well. In a small skillet, heat the oil on medium high heat. Add the panic crumbs and stir continuously until they are golden brown. Add most of the toasted Panko to the pickle mixture and stir to combine. Pour into a cute dish and top with remaining Panko. Store in refrigerator. Serve with veggies, potato chips or pretzel chips.
