Units Scale
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (real mayo, not dressing)
  • 5 tablespoons sour cream
  • 5 tablespoons minced kosher dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons pickle juice (from the jar)
  • 2 tablespoons minced white onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh Italian parsley (leaves, no stems)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced non-pareil capers
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch garlic powder


  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir the mayo and sour cream together.
  2. Add pickles, capers and onion to the bowl. Sprinkle in the fresh parsley and dill. Squeeze lemon juice into the bowl. Add pickle juice and spices. Mix well.
  3. Refrigerate for 1 hour before use. This gives the mixture time to thicken, chill, and become extra flavorful.


Food Processor: If desired, this recipe can be assembled in a food processor. Add the pickles, capers and onion to the bowl. Pulse briefly to mince. Add the remaining ingredients. Pulse again until blended.
