Ready Time

10 mins


7 servings


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise and sour cream until smooth. Add the chopped fresh dill, chives, horseradish, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and paprika to the bowl.

Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.

Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Serve the Benedictine Dip chilled, garnished with additional dill if desired.


Make this dip ahead of time, as it benefits from chilling in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. You can make it up to a day in advance, too! The fresh dill and chives really make this dip shine, so try to use fresh instead of dried herbs if you can.

Don’t be afraid to adjust the amount of horseradish to your taste – if you like a little heat, add a bit more, and if you’re sensitive to spice, start with a small amount and add more to taste.

This dip is quite versatile, so feel free to serve it with veggies, crackers, or even pita chips. You’ll get about 7 servings from this recipe, so it’s perfect for a small gathering or party.
