This dip is great anytime - not just March 17 - keep the ingredients on hand and then whip it up when you need dip. It does need to chill for about 2 hours so the dry spices absorb moisture. The following changes will reduce the saltiness... use all sour cream (no mayo), omit the onion salt and MSG, increase the minced onion. See my photo for a fun way to organize veggies like an Irish Flag.

Not enough freshness, more sour creme, more dill (I used fresh dill) and a dash of lemon juice made this recipe more appealing. I would possibly remove the msg from this recipe, as the dip was somewhat overpowering.

I didn't use the MSG or the hot pepper sauce. It was a hit.

This recipe is just wonderful

This is a great dip. I used to buy Knorr Herb Dip but they stopped making it, and this recipe is an exact replacement for that mix. I found it to be a bit too salty for my tastes, so I may reduce the salt next time. Other than that it is great!

Placing the dip within the green pepper makes it a great presentation for a dinner with an Irish theme. The dip was wonderful and great on crackers. It was a big hit with my 2 year old daughter!

This was quick and easy and tasted pretty good. I really like the green pepper idea.

This was a very good dip. I used fresh dill, more than was called for in the recipe and it turned out well. I loved the idea of serving the dip in the pepper, it definately added to the presentation! I found the dip a little salty and next time I will use all sour cream and no mayo. All in all a good dip!
