I really do love versatile foods and my Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce is at the top of my list. Not only is it simple and quick to make, but it’s also bursting with flavour and freshness from capers, Dijon and fresh dill.
Using fresh dill is definitely the preference in this recipe because of the lovely freshness it adds, however, dried dill can also be used. The general rule of thumb if using dried herbs is to use a third of the stated amount of fresh.
This recipe does call for a small amount of sugar, and I like to let the sauce sit refrigerated for 10-15 minutes to allow the sugar to dissolve and the flavours to meld. Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce really couldn’t be any easier and it’s a wonderful sauce that you’ll want to make over and over.
For my small family of two, using up a cup of sauce is not always an easy task! By incorporating it into dishes we love there’s no chance of any of it going to waste.
Here are many delicious ways to use it.
-drizzle over grilled or pan-fried fish such as salmon, halibut or cod.
-use a dip for cold poached shrimp.
-drizzle over steamed vegetables like asparagus, broccoli or green beans.
-mix into your egg salad, potato salad or chicken salad.
-add to your deviled egg mix.
-thin with buttermilk for a creamy dressing over crisp greens.
-add additional sour cream and top baked potatoes or steamed baby potatoes.
-use as a sandwich spread to liven up your ham or turkey sandwich.
-mix with a little cream cheese and serve with smoked salmon on crostini.
