CREAMY DILL SAUCE RECIPE
I realized recently that I am lacking in the homemade salad dressing and sauce recipe section.
I make a lot of my own dressings and love that I can control the ingredients and flavors depending on my mood.
Another one I make a lot is this Tahini Yogurt Dressing which works great as a sauce or dressing too.
They are so simple to make too which is always a bonus in my book.
I often pull out my blender if I want a really smooth consistency to my dressing but all you really need is a bowl and a spoon or whisk.
Today’s Creamy Dill Sauce Recipe is one of my new favorite homemade salad dressing recipes.
I was buying a creamy dill dressing from the store and realized I could easily make it at home with 4 simple ingredients: Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, fresh dill and lemon juice.
I find that using Greek yogurt in dressing is not only healthier but helps to create a creamy texture.
Creamy Dill Sauce Recipe is also a perfect dip for your vegetables.
Before meals or as a snack I like to snack on cut up vegetables and having a dip on hand is always a plus.
There is something about the yogurt and dill combination that always gets me.
I make my dressings in a blender to create a really smooth consistency but this can easily be made with a simple bowl and spoon or whisk.
Once my dressing is done I store it in an airtight mason jar in the fridge for easy access.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS CREAMY DILL SAUCE RECIPE?
YOGURT: I used plain Greek Yogurt to add that creamy texture and tanginess. It also adds protein.
You could try regular yogurt as well but it might be a thinner sauce.
MAYONNAISE: The mayonnaise adds additional creaminess and flavor to the sauce.
DILL: When I make this I try to use freshly chopped dill but you can use dried if that is all you can find.
I always make the sauce and then add more dill if I feel like it needs more.
LEMON JUICE: The lemon juice adds a hint of sweetness to the sauce. It can also help thin out the sauce if it is too thick.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CREAMY DILL SAUCE?

Use for salads or as a dip for crisp vegetables.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
