Refreshing Savory Lime Dip

Monica H


A super-refreshing dip! They key limes and cilantro work so well together. I love to serve and eat this with a spicy hot chip, because the heat from the chip is instantly cooled by the limey-ness (is that even a word?!) of the dip. Very good with regular tortilla chips, and corn chips, too.

  • 16 oz
    cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 c
  • 16 oz
    sour cream
  • 1 c
    cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 c
    diced scallions
  • 4
  • 1 Tbsp
    grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp
  • 1 Tbsp
    salt (add more to taste)

How to Make Refreshing Savory Lime Dip


  1. Bring cream cheese to room temp. Mix cream cheese together with the mayo and sour cream until they are well incorporated (about 4-5 minutes).
  2. Fold in the cilantro.
  3. Fold in the scallions.
  4. Add salt, cumin and ginger. Mix it in manually, or use an electric mixer.
  5. Grate the zest of all the limes into the dip and mix. I used a microplane; it makes the zest come out super thin and it is so nice that way so you don't get all that zest stuck in your teeth!
  6. Next, juice THREE of the limes into the dip. Mix the dip after each lime juicing.
  7. Taste it! add salt if you want.
  8. Let chill AT LEAST 3 hours before serving. This is excellent after chilling overnight or for at least 24 hours. The lime flavor is stronger the longer this sits. Enjoy!
