Perfect with veggies of all kinds, nuggets, fish, grilled chicken, and more, this flavor-packed Garlic Dipping Sauce is so good, so easy, and so addictive. If you love garlic, then this is the sauce for you!

I particularly love this easy dipping sauce recipe because of its fresh and fabulous flavor. The fresh parsley gives it a lively pop of flavor, a touch of lemon gives it a bit of tang, and by using both sour cream and mayonnaise, the results are smooth, cool, creamy, and delicious.

White pepper is the key to this recipe. Not only does it add lovely flavor, but white pepper blends in much nicer so you don’t see black pepper flecks throughout the garlic dip.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • It’s important to get the garlic as finely chopped as possible. I love using a microplane grater and grating the garlic cloves. This gets them more finely “chopped” than any knife or food processor.
  • This garlic and herb dip recipe will get stronger in flavor as it sits. For best results, make it a few hours ahead of when you’ll need it.
  • Use white pepper instead of black in this garlic mayo dip so that you don’t have black flecks running through it.
