This creamy lemon dill sauce is wonderful on grilled and roasted veggies, salads, and more. Made with 6 ingredients, it comes together in minutes.

This sauce recipe evolved out of my favorite style of cooking: the kind where you open the fridge, look inside and prepare with what you have on hand.

A few weeks back, I had a large amount of fresh dill leftover after making this avocado dressing, and I was searching for ways to use it up.

I’d already sprinkled dill over avocado toast and poached eggs tossed it into salads, and blended it into soup (really, it was a big bunch) (seriously, it was a big bunch).

I had some wonderful asparagus I wanted to cook too, and I thought it would be nice to make a sauce to dress it up.

My imagination immediately went to the sort of creamy lemon dill sauce that’s commonly served with salmon. Wouldn’t it work just as wonderfully on grilled asparagus?

I set to work, and a few minutes later, I had a thick, flavorful dill sauce that I wanted to serve with everything – roasted veggies, steamed artichokes…heck, even French fries!

If you’re a dill fan like me, you have to try this recipe. Easy, adaptable, and tasty, it’s one you’ll make again and again.

Dill Sauce Recipe Ingredients

You just need 6 items to prepare this dill sauce recipe:

  • Dill, of course! It adds a fresh, zesty taste to the creamy sauce.
  • Yogurt – Many classic dill sauce recipes call for sour cream or heavy cream, but you won’t find either of these here. Instead, yogurt forms the sauce’s creamy basis. You can use whole milk normal or Greek yogurt, whatever you choose!
  • Mayonnaise – For richness. You can taste the mayo here, so be sure to use a good one. I prefer Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise, Avocado Oil Mayonnaise, and Vegan Mayo. My own vegan mayo might work here too!
  • Onion powder and garlic — They offer a pungent, flavorful depth of flavor.
  • And fresh lemon juice – To make it beautiful and bright.

This dill sauce recipe couldn’t be simpler to create!

Just combine the ingredients in a small bowl…

and whisk until smooth!

This sauce is best cold, so refrigerate it until you’re ready to use it. Stored in an airtight jar in the fridge, it will keep for up to 4 days.

Serving Suggestions

I love using this lemon dill sauce in three ways:

  • As a salad dressing. Toss it with a simple green salad or a prepared Caesar salad.
  • Over roasted or grilled vegetables. Drizzle it over grilled or roasted asparagus, grilled zucchini, or grilled eggplant. I enjoy it on roasted broccoli and roasted radishes too!
  • As a dip. Try it with steamed artichokes or air fryer French fries.
