What do you need?

Fresh dill

This recipe uses fresh dill. It needs to be chopped quite finely, which you can do easily with scissors or a sharp knife.

I do not recommend substituting dried dill in place of fresh dill as the sauce really needs the freshness of flavor that fresh dill provides. Also, the texture of dried dill may make the sauce feel gritty, since it is not cooked.

Greek yogurt

This recipe is made with Greek yogurt, which is a great source of protein and calcium.

If you don’t have Greek yogurt on hand, you can also use regular yogurt. Just keep in mind that the sauce will be a little thinner.

Dijon mustard

The mustard adds richness to the flavor of the dressing. You can substitute wholegrain mustard.

Serving ideas

This sauce is the ideal accompaniment to serve with salmon or any grilled fish.

It’s also perfect for dipping crudites, spreading on bread or crackers, or even as a salad dressing.
