This dill sauce recipe came from my favorite kitchen: the way you open the fridge, look inside and cook with what you have at hand. A few weeks ago, I had a huge bunch of fresh dill left to make this avocado vinaigrette, and I was looking for ways to use it. I had already sprinkled dill over avocado toast and poached eggs, tossed into salads and blown into soup (seriously, it was a big pile).
I had beautiful asparagus that I also wanted to cook, and I thought it would be nice to make a sauce to put it on. My mind immediately went to the kind of creamy lemon-dill sauce that is often served with salmon. Wouldn’t it work so well on roasted asparagus?
I got to work, and a few minutes after I had a rich and tasty dill sauce that I wanted to serve with everything – fried vegetables, steamed artichokes h devil, even French fries! If you are a dill lover like me, you must try this recipe. Simple, versatile and tasty, this is what you will do again and again.
Dill sauce recipe Ingredients
You only need 6 ingredients to make this dill sauce recipe:
- Dill, of course! It gives the creamy sauce a fresh, tart taste.
- Yogurt-many classic dill sauce recipes call for sour cream or thick cream, but you will not find any of them here. Instead, yogurt creates the creamy base of the sauce. You can use regular whole milk or Greek yogurt, depending on your preferences!
- Mayonnaise – for wealth. You can try the mayonnaise here, so be sure to use a good one. I like classic Sir Kensington mayonnaise, avocado oil mayonnaise and Vegan mayonnaise. My homemade vegan mayonnaise would work here too!
- Onion powder and garlic-they add a depth of strong and tasty taste.
- And fresh lemon juice-to make it pleasant and bright.
- This dill sauce recipe couldn’t be easier to make!
Just add the ingredients in a small bowl…
and whisk until smooth!
This sauce is better cold, so cool it until you are ready to use it. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it lasts up to 4 days.
Suggestions for serving dill sauce
I love using this lemon dill sauce in three ways:
- As a dressing. Mix it with a simple green salad or a homemade Caesar salad.
- On roasted or grilled vegetables. Pour it over grilled or roasted asparagus, grilled zucchini or grilled eggplant. I also like it on roasted broccoli and roasted radishes!
- Like a jump. Try it with steamed artichokes or fryer fries.
