This dressing recipe is out of this world good! It's great on crispy salad greens, or used as a dip for fresh veggies, I also love it on fish in place of tartar sauce. I used it on a macaroni salad I made over the weekend (in place of mayo) and we couldn't get enough of it! I agree with Michelle S. in that the dill was a little bit over-powering. I do recommend that you cut down on that ingredient a bit. 1 1/2 teaspoons of dill would be more than enough. I already made that correction on my printed copy of this recipe. I also used black pepper instead of white simply because it was what I had on hand. I don't think it effected the taste of the dressing at all, I guess some folks would just rather not see little black specks of pepper in a white sauce or dressing. It didn't bother us in the least though. Years ago a very well known salad dressing company used to sell a bottled dressing that tasted very much like this recipe. My family loved it! We used it on almost everthing. Then suddenly without warning or explaination, they stopped making it. I can't tell you how happy I was to find this recipe and then be so fully pleased with the way it tasted. Thanks for the recipe Kim, this one's a keeper!
WONDERFUL dressing. It mixes up quickly and has such refreshing flavor. I think I will cut down on the dill just a "hair" the next time I prepare this as I think it overpowers the other flavors slightly. I served this over mixed greens with red onion, cauliflower, vlack and green olives, red peppers and marinated artichoke pieces. Absolutely delightful. I will be enjoying this often. Thanks Kim for sharing this treasure with us.
Great recipe. Growing cucumbers for the first time and needed to find recipes to enjoy (garden is quite successful this year). The only ingredient I didn't have was the white pepper. Would love to know if it would make the recipe even better. I did not find the flavor strong enough for traditional lettuce based salad so next time I will try more cucumber. I will enjoy the remander of the batch of dressing on sliced tomatoes and sliced cucumbers. Also, to add texture I shredded the cucumber and left about 1/4 - 1/3 mixed, rather than pureed into the dressing.
