Made salmon patties a stand out meal. Also really liked it on sliced tomatos. I also added another 1/2 tsp. dill and used a little less mustard and a little more mayo than recipe specified.

Too much Dijon for me (tangy). I will try it again with less Dijon Mustard (and FRESH dill). I actually ended up heating it up for a warm sauce with Salmon...added a splash of white wine and let it cook down a wee bit. Thank you for submitting it.

Great dill sauce - I love the dijon mustard flavor and you can adjust it to your liking.

A great alternative to plain old tartar sauce. This recipe makes more than enough. Next time I'll cut it in half. Very tasty!

very good---can be used as salad dressing if you add a bit more buttermilk to it!

This was excellent...however a little too spicy for me. I think I just should have got a less spicy dijon, however, I simply added 2 tablespoons of honey and it cut the spiciness perfectly..

Wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing.

i made this recipe without the buttermilk and it still tasted great. the more dijon mustard you use, the spicier it will be. i was trying to re-create the veggie sandwiches from Atlanta Bread Company,using the dill sauce and it tasted pretty similar.
