Family insists I make this for Christmas dinner to go along with the prime rib. They even love it cold.

I clipped this same recipe from our local newpaper a couple of years ago. It's a very nice, very easy, savory sideside and a great way to soak up some delicious prime rib or roast beef juice. Use Vidalia onions if at all possible; yellow ones if not. Add more Tabasco and/or dill to taste. Enjoy!
