This simple and delicious dill sauce will spice up any party or event you're hosting from now on. Whether it's chips, baguette slices, carrot sticks, or whatever else you like most for transferring sauces into your mouth, it should satisfy even the most picky and discerning of palates.

This sauce does keep well covered in a fridge for upwards of one week. In fact, I think it tastes better after a day or two of chilling. There are a lot of great ways to dress it up, too. Add a little shake of cayenne pepper over the top for some extra visual intrigue and a spicy kick. If you're missing the zip of a sauce made without sour cream, you could try cutting the mayonnaise with some yogurt for a little extra funky freshness.

Whatever you choose to do, it's sure to turn out great. Make it for veggies, chicken fingers, for salmon, or just to eat by the spoon if you really like it. We’re not here to judge. What do you like to dip into dill sauce?
