Creamy Cucumber Dill Sauce

This sauce is great as a dip for veggies or crackers, in sandwiches and pitas, or with chicken and pork. I also really, REALLY love it with fish. It’s like a cross between tartar and tzatziki sauce. I really love that it only takes minutes to make but adds such a great depth of flavor to any veggie, sandwich, or meal that you serve it with. Quick, simple, and tasty – I love that!

Combine together in a bowl the mayonnaise, sour cream, cucumber, fresh dill, green onion, lemon juice, minced garlic, and sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mix until well combined. Place into the refrigerator until ready to use. Enjoy.

    This looks awesome. We love tzatziki at our house and this looks even richer and tastier.

    I love tartar sauce and tzatziki so a combination of both sound like something I would really enjoy.

    This sounds delicious Pam and I can imagine a dollop of it resting on a nice piece of grilled salmon.

    Sauces are useful for so many things! This one sounds great with fish, or maybe even in a tuna sandwich.

    When I first saw the title I asked myself, “How is that not tzatziki?”
    But then I read on, what an interesting hybrid (and I don’t mean “interesting” as when someone says something odd and your only reply is “that’s ummmmm interesting”).
