Sort By :
"There is nothing that compares! Absolutely delicious sauce that can be eaten on anything you can think of! I paired the salmon with fried diced potatoes and cauliflower and my family was dipping everything in the sauce."
"Everyone loved this. A definite keeper!"
"I use 4 tablespoons of fresh dill that I chop up. I use a whole cup of the mayo."
"This Creamy Dill Sauce is SO incredible! I had been looking for a recipe that's close to Luby's tartar sauce. If this isn't the exact recipe, it's VERY close."
"This is the best salmon dish I've ever made and my husband even ate the leftovers. He loved it and is now requesting fish for dinner when he's normally a steak and potatoes kind of guy. The dill sauce made the dish. I went a little heavy on the dill, but it was fantastic. We will be making this a staple."
