8 Delicious Dips That Are So Easy To Make You'll Never Buy Them Again

Thousand island

Often used as a salad dressing, homemade thousand island makes a great dip too. Mix mayonnaise with ketchup, mustard, vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, chilli sauce, paprika and seasoning

Caramelised onion

This dip is simple to make, although you need a little time to properly caramelise the onions. Once they're cooked, add a splash of Worcestershire sauce or balsamic vinegar

Blue cheese

Blue cheese mixed with mayo, sour cream, lemon and garlic is the go-to accompaniment to buffalo chicken wings. But it's also great with a selection of crudités and crackers.


Queso, a creamy Mexican dip, blends melted cheese with tomatoes, chilies, and spices. Serve it warm with tortilla chips for a flavorful and satisfying snack or appetizer. Customize with jalapeños, cilantro, or ground beef for added kick.


First, mix together equal quantities of mayo and sour cream. Then add just a little ground garlic and onion, chopped fresh herbs of your choice  and lemon juice.

Tomato salsa

Fresh tomato salsa, or pico de gallo, is a zesty and versatile condiment. Dice ripe tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Mix with minced jalapeños, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Let flavors meld for a vibrant, refreshing topping for tacos, nachos, or grilled meats.

Ginger and watercress mayo

A homemade mayo with punchy ginger and peppery watercress goes so well with roast chicken. You could also use as a dip for chicken skewers or fat, juicy prawns.
