I've been trying to recreate a dill dip that I purchased at an Interation Bazaar thats held here in Germany on our Air Force Base and have yet to do it...untill I found THIS recipe! Not only did it satisfy my craving for a good dill dip.. this one is BETTER. I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder just to give it that *extra* kick. I really think that the key to this dip is letting it sit at LEAST 3-4 hours. I tasted it right after I made it and it was good...but after I let it sit, it was amazing. I'm ashamed to say I ate all of it with a bag of pretzles for dinner, LOL!

This was not a good recipe as is. I had to add more seasonings and dill to get some flavor. It had too strong of a sour cream taste, like a flavored sour cream. It wasn't so tasty.

I used 2 tsp dried dill since i didn't have fresh dill on hand. I tasted it when I mixed all the ingredients together and I thought I wouldn't like it, but once refrigerated, all the tastes blend perfectly well. You really have to refrigerate it first. Guests liked it too!!

I LOVE it - even BEFORE letting it sit for a few hours in the refrigerator. I didn't have any fresh dill on hand, so I used 2 tsp of dried dill weed instead. I also took another reviewers tip and used 1/2 tsp of garlic powder which really made quite a difference in giving a little something more. Excellent recipe!! I'm just waiting for my husband to wake up from a nap so he can try it for himself!

I used reduced fat sour cream/mayonnaise. I made no other changes. Very "dill-y" which I really liked. NOTE: The longer this dip sits, the better it is.

This recipe is good on fish (cod, snapper, etc)and I have even used it on pork chops. I bake both types of "meat" in the oven in a shallow dish. Just spread it on fish at the beginning of the cooking process or on pork half way through, after you flip it. Would probably work on chicken, too, just like the pork.

This is a very good, simple sauce. It is excellent with salmon and tuna, as well as vegetables. I served it with salmon and steamed asparagus. It's light and flavorful. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a very easy and simple recipe, and it tastes great! I didn't have any fresh dill, so I used the dried kind, except I halved the amount called for. I tasted it right after I mixed it and could only taste the sour cream, but after I let it sit over night it was awesome! So much flavor! I brought it to a dinner party and the kids only wanted to eat the dip off their carrots, rather than bite into them as well! I will definitely be using this recipe again when I have a dinner party.
