Forget about your typical sour cream and onion chip dip. It's easy, and if you make it from scratch with caramelized onions, it's elevated to an incredible dip.
But why not surprise your mouth with a fun new twist on a chip dip with this dip made from olive dust (aka olive powder)!
DIY Olive Powder Dip
This dip is perfect for serving with dehydrated veggie chips like jicama or spreading onto tomato chips. You can use it for standard snack chips and crackers for game night or to put out on a big game day spread!
- Olive Powder - made from dehydrated olives (yes, you can dehydrate olives!!)
- Sour Cream - substitute greek yogurt or your favorite vegan sour cream alternative.
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
You can be creative in the spices and herbs you add to this. This is a basic building block for a simple dip that works for our family. If you're more adventurous, play around with the flavors!
- Mix all ingredients
- Allow to meld for 1-2 hours in the fridge before serving, if possible.
- Crackers (I serve with Smoked Gouda Triscuts often)
- Firm dehydrated veggie chips
- Potato chips
- Tortilla chips or corn chip
- A spoon
- Baked potato (surprisingly, it's very good on a baked potato!)
- Your finger - you know you're going to. It's that good!
If you happen to end up with leftovers, save them for another day!
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the fridge (assuming there's been no double-dipping going on!)
- Make this up a day or two ahead and store it in your sour cream container until serving. But it's good to be served immediately, too!
- Add some dehydrated olives to garnish the top.
- Mix up the seasonings or spices if you'd like. This is an easy recipe to make that reflects your night's theme!
How to Make Olive Dust
Olive dust, aka olive powder, is easy to make from dehydrated olives.

- Place dried olive slices into a coffee grinder
- Pulse until chunks are broken down into powder
- Store in an airtight container for a month on the shelf or in the freezer for a year.
