Creamy Cucumber Dill Sauce
This sauce is great as a dip for veggies or crackers, in sandwiches and pitas, or with chicken and pork. I also really, REALLY love it with fish. It’s like a cross between tartar and tzatziki sauce. I really love that it only takes minutes to make but adds such a great depth of flavor to any veggie, sandwich, or meal that you serve it with. Quick, simple, and tasty – I love that!

i tend to douse my foods with tzatziki sauce when it’s available, so you know i’m all about a sauce like this one!
I love this twist, especially with the lemon. I bet this is great on fish!
I will definitely be trying this one…. I mean, I can’t proclaim myself the sauce queen without trying ALL sauces 🙂
Oh yes! Thank you for posting this today. I need to make some. So refreshing for our summer lighter meals!
This looks awesome. We love tzatziki at our house and this looks even richer and tastier.
This would be the perfect sauce at our house!
I love tartar sauce and tzatziki so a combination of both sound like something I would really enjoy.
This sounds delicious Pam and I can imagine a dollop of it resting on a nice piece of grilled salmon.
Sauces are useful for so many things! This one sounds great with fish, or maybe even in a tuna sandwich.
Perfect for a summer picnic!
This is a great sauce, Pam. There are so many foods that it goes with.
Looks so creamy and delish, I can think of all kinds of things this would be good with!
Oh yum, I can think of so many things that this would be good on. Salads, burgers, gyros …….
Ooo I can see this being lovely over salmon! Definitely trying it.
This sounds delicious. And I can see where it would be good as a dip, on a sandwich, and much much more. Great recipe.
This would be so good!
This reminds me of Greek Tzatziki sauce…delish!
When I first saw the title I asked myself, “How is that not tzatziki?”
But then I read on, what an interesting hybrid (and I don’t mean “interesting” as when someone says something odd and your only reply is “that’s ummmmm interesting”).
