I made this and poured it over chicken breasts, and baked it for 25-30 mins at 350. It was really really good! I served it with some pasta tossed in parmesan and garlic butter. Really tasty, and quite quick too, which is always a bonus. I will make this again. Thanks Sara for this really good sauce!

This recipe is better with only one tsp of dried dill, one whole green onion, 1/2 cup mayo (helmans). Whipped in a blender for about 1-2 minutes, sit in the fridge over night. Excellent on Salmon or with Smoked Salmon, or just vegetables.

I cut out the green onion because I have some picky eatter in my house and added a teaspoon of dijon mustard to give the sauce a little punch! It was amazing over simple over baked salmon.

lovely! used it as a salmon topping, baked it right in actually, I didnt have green onion so I improvised and used some very finely minced white onion, but wow! Delicious!

Yum! I did about a half batch (I say 'about' because I didn't measure anything!). Around ½ cup sour cream, maybe 3 or 4 TBS mayo, close to 2 tsp dried dill, about 1 TBS lemon juice, and I omitted the green onions and put maybe 1/4 tsp onion powder. We're out of green onions and my daughter isn't keen on biting into onion bits. :) Oh, I also added a couple shakes of salt and pepper. A very good dip right away, it will be excellent in a couple hours. Thanks for sharing, Sara!

this was great, I used it as a layer in a layer salad, instead of salad dressing. Not a leaf of lettuce was left.

I really like to put this over my Salmon Patties, even my husband likes it and he's very picky ! The green onions give it the kick !

This was great! I used light sour cream and light mayo and it was still great, however I added a little salt and for some reason I threw some dried parsley in too. (And I forgot the green onions until the last minute.) I mixed it up and topped some salmon filets with it, let it chill for 30 minutes and then cooked it. I served a little extra on the side as well and it was great, and there was a lot leftover which came in handy for dipping baby carrots while waiting for the salmon to cook :)
