This turned out quite well and very tasty. I was unsure how we would like the dill flavour but it was good, not too powerful. I omitted the salt, used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and I did use light mayonnaise and it worked fine for me. Will make again for sure!!!

I have been making this recipe since I first found it a few years ago. It's easy to make and very tasty! Love the addition of the zuchini in the dish. I it most of the time as written. I have sometimes added more cheese, but that's a personal preferance of my family. THANKS for sharing the recipe...it is excellent!
