Creamy Garlic Dill Sauce

The inspiration for this sauce came from a dish created by Chef Michael Smith on his cooking show, "Chef at Home". So if you think it seems pedestrian to make a sauce with pickles, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

This is easy to make, great with fish and is kid-friendly.

Per person:

3-4 tbls low-fat or fat-free mayo or Miracle Whip
2 good quality dill pickles, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried dill or 2 tbls fresh dill
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp fresh lemon zest (optional)


  1. Who thinks it's pedestrian to make sauces with pickles!? I love pickles!

    Have you ever had okra pickles...amazing!

  2. Oh, okra pickles sounds great, I've never seen them around here!
