Description

This easy Dill Sauce is fresh and flavorful- perfect for salmon, veggies, or use it as a dip. It’s made with simple ingredients and only takes only 5 minutes to make.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup sour cream – see notes for substitutions
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise -see notes for substitutions
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced, or 1/2 teaspoon onion powder or garlic powder
  • 34 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • 12 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Whisk sour cream, mayo, and garlic in a small bowl.
  2. Add the fresh dill, lemon zest, *lemon juice and pepper. Mix, taste, and add salt to taste. Adjust lemon and pepper to your liking.
  3. *Yogurt is tangier and may not need lemon juice. 

Notes

Optional additions: finely chopped onion, parsley, grated horseradish (for a little kick). 

Sour cream: To me, sour cream tastes the best here, but feel free to use yogurt. If using yogurt ( or vegan yogurt) you may need to whisk in a couple of teaspoons (to taste)  of olive oil for extra richness. 

MayoUse store-bought mayo, homemade mayo or vegan mayo.

Dill sauce will keep up to 4 days in the fridge.
