Creamy Dill Sauce
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
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!
