Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite dips ever – clam dip. I love it, the kids love it, and I hope you’ll love it too. For those of you watching your firgure, it even tastes great using Neufchatal cheese for a lower calorie version.

I like my dip on the tart side, so I put lots of lemon and Worcestershire sauce. For me, this dip is the perfect combination of thick and creamy clam goodness. I’ve also updated the recipe and added some dill, since clams and dill go really well together and adds another layer of flavor.

I didn’t get any pictures of the preparation because it’s a super quick and easy dip to make. I pretty much dump everything into a mixing bowl or use a stand mixer to blend everything together. Then, I chill it for at least an hour and then serve chilled. Clam dip from scratch is so yummy! I hope you give this clam dip recipe a try.

  1. This would be a wonderful dip to serve at parties. It’s not your typical ranch or french onion dip. I’m stopping by from the Let’s Get Real Friday Link Party. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing this with us. I hope you’ll join us this Friday.

  2. Hi Erlene! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. Your clam dip sounds really delicious. I bet my family would love it. I know they would be thrilled with a new drip to try. We dip more raw vegetables than potato chips, but we really do love our dip. My kids will eat almost anything if they get to dip it!
