Easy party dip ingredients

These easy dips for parties are classics, plus they're simple to make and use only 5 ingredients each!

Here's what you'll need for the creamy parmesan dip:

  • Plain yogurt – use a thick, creamy Greek-style yogurt.
  • Parmesan cheese – for its delicious bold cheesy flavor. A few feta crumbles also taste great.
  • Dijon mustard – has a tangy tart taste that compliments the other flavors beautifully.
  • Lemon juice – for a pop of bright citrus flavor.
  • Garlic
  • Salt + pepper

Here's what you'll need for the honey mustard dip:

  • Mayonnaise – we use a regular mayonnaise for that full flavor experience but you can use light, or swap it for Greek yogurt if you prefer.
  • Honey – any runny honey variety will do.
  • Dijon mustard – we use dijon for its bold tangy taste with a bit of heat. You can use yellow prepared mustard if you prefer but it will change the taste.
  • Garlic
  • Salt

This is what you'll need for the green goddess dip:

  • Kale – we use kale but you can use spinach or any greens you have on hand like swiss chard or arugula.
  • Cilantro – parsley also tastes great in place of cilantro.
  • Avocado – make sure your avocado is nice and ripe for maximum creaminess.
  • Garlic
  • Dijon mustard
  • Lemon juice – you can adjust the taste by adding more or less lemon, depending on your taste preference. You can also use other citrus juices like lime juice or orange juice.

Tips for making a party dip platter

Every party needs a dip to serve with crackers, bread, or veggies, and turning it into a platter can be so much fun! There's absolutely no right or wrong way to make a dip platter. Just find a nice big plate or board, transfer the dips to cute little bowls, and choose around five foods to serve them with.

Here are a few ideas of finger foods that taste great with these easy party dips:

  • Pretzels, pretzel sticks, or soft pretzels
  • Root veggie chips
  • Ruffled potato chips or tortilla chips
  • Warm pita bread or pita chips
  • Crackers or seed crackers
  • Raw veggies like carrots (or rainbow carrots), cucumbers, snow peas, snap peas, bell peppers, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, radishes, or celery sticks to name a few.
  • Roasted veggies like sweet potato rounds, cauliflower or broccoli florets, carrots, asparagus spears, or even brussels sprouts.

A dip platter is the perfect thing to serve at Christmas, Thanksgiving, a super bowl party, or any special occasion.


Can I prepare them ahead of time?

Yes! Apart from the green goddess dressing which needs to be made just before serving, the dips can be made 2-3 days in advance. Simply store them in airtight containers in the fridge. Pull them out a ½ hour before guests arrive so they have time to come to room temperature.

How long do the dips last in the fridge?

The honey mustard and creamy parmesan dips will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. Because the green goddess dressing has avocado in it, it will brown or oxidize pretty rapidly. You can still eat it but it will change to an unappetizing brown color.

How long can the parmesan dip sit on the counter?

Because it has dairy in it, the creamy parmesan dip should sit out at room temperature for no longer than two hours.

Other ways to use these easy party dips

There are so many ways to transform these party dips into more than simply dips. Here are some of our favorite ways to dunk, dress, and spread 'em:

For the creamy parmesan dip, spoon it over your favorite roasted vegetables like sauteed asparagus or roasted broccoli. Toss it with chopped romaine lettuce for a caesar-like dressing, or even pour it over noodles for a pasta side dish.

For the honey mustard dip, try pouring it over salmon before you bake it in the oven, or use it as a dip for chicken fingers. Even slather it inside a ham and cheese sandwich.

For the green goddess dip, spread it on a sandwich piled high with turkey and veggies, use it on your tacos instead of guacamole, or serve it with baked salmon. Serve it in a grain bowl with rice or quinoa and roasted veggies for a wholesome complete meal.
