Recipe Ingredients

Raspberry Dip Recipe (3)

Cheddar cheese– Sharp cheddar tastes best for this recipe with a thick or fancy cut. Other varieties of cheese taste great, too, such as monterey jack, colby jack or even pepperjack.

Mayonnaise – To slim down the recipe, replace half or all of the mayo with Greek vanilla yogurt.

Pecans– For a nut-free dish, omit the pecans.

Raspberry preserves – Other preserves or jams work well in place of raspberry, such as apricot or grape. This will alter the taste of the dish, however.

Ritz crackers – Serve this cold dip with Ritz crackers, for optimal yumminess. Other dipping options: tortilla chips, carrots, celery sticks, pita wedges, pretzels, Wheat Thins or Triscuits.

    My family loves this dip. We skip the green onion. I usually hate raspberries but this is delicious, the other flavors balance so well. Thank you!

    How could I adjust this recipe using fresh raspberries? We have more than I know what to do with, but not making jam.

    • Raspberry Dip Recipe (13)Megan Porta

      Too many fresh raspberries is such a wonderful problem to have! I haven’t tried this but you could puree your raspberries and then simmer them to bring out the pectin in them until they are thickened, then use you! If you do it, let me know how it turns out. Thanks for asking, Patti! But be sure to make a Peach Raspberry Tart or a Chocolate Raspberry Bundt cake because I love showcasing raspberries in them.

      Excellent dip…my sister-in-law made it for Christmas Eve get together and wondering if you can use raspberry jam in place of the preserves

      Reply

      • Raspberry Dip Recipe (16)Megan Porta

        Hi Cathy – great question! The difference between those are pretty minimal – the jam is more mashed fruit, and preserves has chunks of fruit left in it with seeds. That would be an easy swap, just a preference!

    Could you make this without the nuts? We have nut allergies in our house so anything with nuts is out. Would something else be a good substitute? Thanks!

      This can easily be prepared without nuts and be delicious. You can also throw in chopped up pretzels or seeds of some kind.
