German Dill Salad Dressing with Dijon Mustard

A lot of German salad dressings have a bitter flavor to them and vinegar is a frequent ingredient in them. The following recipe makes a delicious German dill salad dressing and it is nice drizzled over crisp greens or even over warm potatoes. The sour cream gives it a nice texture, and the mustard and vinegar add piquancy. The extra-virgin olive oil softens the piquancy and the dill weed gives it a great aromatic flavor which makes it suitable for various uses.

German potato salad is a famous dish and this German dill salad dressing would go well with that or with most other simple salad recipes. If you are looking for an even easier German salad dressing recipe you could whisk half a cup of milk with two tablespoons each of vinegar and sugar, swapping the sugar for honey if you prefer. This white-colored dressing would be nice with salad greens.

Whisk these ingredients together and your German dill salad dressing is all ready to serve. Choose which kind of greens you want to serve the dressing with – perhaps romaine, iceberg, baby spinach, or even mixed baby salad leaves. Add warm potatoes, crispy pancetta or bacon and perhaps some green beans if you want to make a main mean rather than a salad appetizer or side dish
