Fresh dill is combined with Greek yogurt, mayonnaise and lemon juice to create this Creamy Dill Sauce . It comes together in under 5 minutes and makes a nice salad dressing or dip for your vegetables. I also love to use this on wraps and in rice bowls!
CREAMY DILL SAUCE
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 is one of my new favorite homemade salad dressing recipes or salmon dill sauce.
I also love it paired with this salmon recipe.
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 delicious sauce to dip your vegetables in.
Before meals or as a snack I like to snack on cut up vegetables and having a dipping sauce is always a bonus.
There is something about the yogurt and dill combination that always gets me. I just love adding fresh herbs to sauces and dressings. They really take the recipe to the next level.
I also really like using this dressing in non-traditional ways, like drizzling it over salmon patties, a salmon fillet, or this Mediterranean Salmon, Grilled Beef Kofta Kebabs or this Mediterranean Chicken.
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. You could also use sour cream instead.
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 this easy dill sauce as the recipe describes and then add more dill if I feel like it needs more. If you don’t have fresh dill you can use dried dill in its place.
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. Another option to add more flavor is a teaspoon of dijon mustard.
