1. Creamy Dill Sauce Recipe


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a medium-sized bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped onion, lemon juice, horseradish, 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh dill, garlic salt, and black pepper.

Whisk the ingredients together until well combined and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more lemon juice for tartness, horseradish for a bit of heat, or dill for a stronger herbal flavor.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dill sauce for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Serve the chilled dill sauce as a condiment or dipping sauce alongside your favorite dishes, such as:

  • Baked salmon
  • Baked chicken breast
  • Steamed or roasted vegetables
  • Crispy potato wedges or fries
  • Crusty bread or crackers

The combination of tangy mayonnaise, cool sour cream, and fresh dill creates a flavor that complements a wide variety of foods. The addition of onion, lemon juice, and horseradish adds depth and complexity to the sauce, making it a true flavor powerhouse.

If you like a bit more heat, add a touch more horseradish. If you prefer a tangier sauce, increase the lemon juice. Feel free to experiment with the ratios to find the perfect balance of flavors for your taste buds.
