Creamy Dill Sauce

Creamy Dill Sauce recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

With all the seafood we have been enjoying, a dill sauce was sure to happen eventually. I wanted a thicker sauce that was closer to a dip than a dressing. Creamy, tangy and packed with as much dill as I could possibly add in, this was an excellent dipping sauce. Delicious with fresh vegetables or even as a spread on top of salmon, this time I served it with Beer Battered Halibut.

If you are looking for a pourable salad dressing, I made a Peppery Dill Ranch Dressing earlier this year and it has been seen in my refrigerator numerous times since then. It is a pourable dressing that is delicious on salads or with fresh vegetables.

Dill Dipping Sauce
(printable recipe)

1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped or 5 teaspoons dried dill
1 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice or 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (both are great in this recipe)

Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve, preferably for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!

  1. Love dill sauce for fish.. I make one similar to this... there is just something about fresh dill and fish that work so wonderfully together!

  2. That looks pretty dip-o-licious! Have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend :)

  3. Mary, the dill is going crazy in my garden right now, so this tasty dip is going on my must-do-soon list!

  4. I can see how this would be fantastic with crudités and a zillion other things. I wonder if you used low fat mayo and reduced fat sour cream if it would be as good. What do you think?

    1. I'm sure it would work. I'd probably increase the spices a bit as needed. If you try it, let me know. Have a great weekend!

  5. Dill is one of my favorite fresh herbs to add to foods. Just when I think I'm finished, I add dill and know it's that much better.

    And a sauce on the side is ever better. After all, not everyone has my love.

  6. Mmm I'm thinking this would also be the perfect dip for some chips!

  7. I made some calamari appetizers (cut a steak into strips, breaded it in panko and fried). I made this sauce for them. Perfection! Thank you!
