  1. I just made a bit of it and I really enjoyed the taste and I added a bit on my noodles at the same tim . Made for CQ 2017.
  2. Made exactly as written for the Scandinavian region of CQ4 & the Happy Campers team - I have a recipe much like this one that I refer to as "My Personal Treasure". I discovered it when I came to Iceland & I fell in love w/using it the same way Scandinavians do -- Atop smoked salmon & smoked trout appies. So I decided to do that using your sauce as you see in the pic. This is very good Kathy & also works well w/a variety of meats on an antipasto tray for example. I'm sure the 2 of us will find a ton more ways to share it w/our family & friends. Thx for inspiring me again. :-)
  3. This was a very easy sauce to make and very good with cod too! It would actually be great with any seafood and even chicken. I used a really grainy dijon mustard (personal preference) and forgot to set some dill aside for the top but it went to good use in the mixture. Thanks!
  4. Aussie Swap#84: Outstanding recipe! We made this as a dipping sauce for meats cooked in our fondue pot and it was the perfect compliment!
  5. Reviewed for ZWT9- delicious ! The perfect partner to grilled salmon. I used fresh dill from my herb garden and added some extra lemon juice to thin the consistency a little. A definite make again sauce for us. Photos also being posted


Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel.
