This corn relish dip recipe is so easy, it may just be the most basic recipe in my jam-packed family recipe collection.

The dip, on the other hand, reaches dizzy heights of tastiness.

It’s so good that I’ve never tired of it in 30+ years. It’s one of those things in life that is almost too good to be true!

Two ingredients: is that all? 

Yes, there’s just two ingredients required to whip up this recipe.

Both should be readily available at the supermarket if you don’t already have them in your pantry and fridge.

What are these magic ingredients?

You’ll need a jar of corn relish and a block of cream cheese.

That’s all!

Making Easy Corn Relish Dip

It really is absolutely simple to make this dip.

Cut the cream cheese in blocks, add the corn relish and beat in a stand mixer for two minutes.

Next steps?

Spoon it out into a pretty bowl and add a simple green herb garnish for colour. I’ve used mint here but parsley or chives also work well. 

Now just choose your favourite crackers and enjoy!

How long will it last?

Your Corn Relish Dip will last a few days in the fridge.

Can I substitute the ingredients?

Below in the comments you’ll read some lovely variation ideas from our community.

Some like to use sour cream instead of cream cheese.

Others use their homemade relish or gherkin relish instead of the corn relish.

You could also make it healthier by serving with carrot and celery sticks or other vegetables.

If you have a variation idea, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Would this recipe work as a voulavant filling?

Hi Karen. I think it might be a bit too heavy as a voulavant filling. This filling would work (though it's not as "quick and easy" as this dip):

Exactly the way I have always made it and although I have tried variations over the years I always come back to this. It is delish! I will be making it again to share at Christmas. Thanks Libby.

My mum made this for years. It was a staple at gatherings and parties in my childhood. As an adult, I had made it quite a few times, and I started to add sour cream to make it a bit softer, ending up witha mix that was 1/2 sour cream, and 1/2 cream cheese. I eventually made it with all sour cream, as it was quicker when guests were arriving. One day, the shop was out of corn relish, and I grabbed some masterfoods gherkin relish instead. A revelation! This now our favorite variation. :)

Hi Jude. oh, love the gherkin relish idea - will definitely be trying that! Thanks for sharing. Libby :)

I gave this recipe to my mother to make for Christmas day. She couldn't believe the recipe was still about and recalled she used to make this dip years ago. She proudly presented the dip in a crystal bowl, it went down a treat on Christmas day.

Hi Annette. oh, thanks so much for sharing this - I can just picture the crystal bowl, how lovely! So pleased it went down well. Libby :)

I used to make this over 50 years ago. I can't believe that it is still popular. It is so simple to make and soo oo yummy. I have also substituted my home made green tomato relish and again soo oo yummy. I made it every Friday night as I played cards. I needed to have a little bit of a variety. Thanks for the memories. ???

Hi Sandra. Yes, it's still popular - many people commented on my Facebook post about this telling me that they still make it. It's a real crowd pleaser. Love the variation idea, sounds yummy. Thanks for commenting! Libby
