The best sour cream and chive dip

Sharing is caring!

Our sour cream and chive dip is super easy to make – you’ll just need two ingredients and a few minutes to mix it!

Sour cream and chive dip is so ridiculously simple to make, it really only needs just two ingredients soured cream and freshly snipped chives, that’s it.

Ready made shop bought sour cream and chive dip tends to have added extras like preservatives and various other additives in the ingredient list too, so we do tend to like to mix up our own, especially as its just SO easy!

How to grow chives

Chives are super easy to grow – well worth keeping a little pot of them in the garden or even on a sunny windowsill indoors.

Chives taste so good not only in soured cream dip but also they add a nice delicate onion flavour to omelettes, egg mayonnaise and are great with salmon and new potatoes too. 

  • Sew chive seeds in pots of compost in early spring – I keep them indoors on the windowsill until they start to grow and until the weather is warmer. 
  • You can also buy young chive plants from the garden centre. 
  • Just cut the chives when you need them and the chive flowers are edible too – they make salads look extra nice!
