Sweet Mustard Dill Sauce

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


This sauce appeared in James Beard’s Theory & Practice of Good Cooking as a sauce for gravlax. It is good for that, but more typically I use it with smoked salmon as an alternative to cream cheese or a horseradish mayonnaise sauce. It is also good with broiled or grilled salmon.

4 Tbs. German mustard (not hot but spicy)

1 tsp. ground mustard

3 Tbs. sugar

2 Tbs. white wine vinegar

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 package fresh dill, with the stems removed (~3 Tbs. chopped)

Add the dill to the bowl of a food processor, and chop it. Add the remaining ingredients, and pulse until well blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and pulse a few more times.
