Dill Sauce is made with amazing ingredients like lemon juice, fresh dill, and garlic. Once you try you know it is not only a dill sauce for salmon, but you can easily serve it with everything else, such as falafel. It comes together easily at home in under 5 minutes and will make your tastebuds happy any time.
Typically you will find sour cream and mayo in a dill sauce recipe which is absolutely delicious.
However, I use yoghurt (non dairy) and tahini instead for richness and creaminess. These two ingredients make everything creamy, rich and add lots of wonderful flavors.
At the same time it makes everything so versatile as I said above it is not only a dill sauce for salmon, yet you can absolutely use it for everything whatever might float your boat.

Takes under 5 minutes to make, but the result tastes like in you eat in an amazing restaurant.
A really fresh sauce, because lemon juice, yoghurt and of course dill really make the final result up.

Look at my step by step pictures: I like to serve everything up with salmon (I use plant based, but will work with any you like for sure). This is a classic pair which tastes anytime wonderful. Therefore I go further with my imagination and serve secondly up with falafel and bread, so good.

Yoghurt: This is our base that provides creaminess and a great texture.
Tahini adds another savory flavor and richness to our sauce. It really gives everything an amazing creamy texture.
