Green Dill Sauce is simply home made mayo that becomes green with the addition of assorted herbs and/or vegetables. You can change the flavor to suit your own taste with the choice and amount of herbs you add. I use unflavored rice vinegar because I find it less sharp than white vinegar. I used to add a teaspoon of French mustard but my family prefers it without. Once you have the basic formula, you can adjust it to your own tastebuds.

Serve this Green Dill Sauce with poached fish or steamed vegetables.

Scrape it down from the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Taste. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Scrape sauce into a serving dish. Cover with plastic wrap and chill.
