Dill & Lemon Mayonaise

This very simple, yet delicious mayonnaise works well with anything. In particular fish.
It’s so easy to make, but the flavours really do pack a punch. It’s fresh and creamy and really makes a difference to a simple meal with almost no effort at all.
I made it to go with the salmon and asparagus meal we had for dinner. I adore the flavour of dill.
This recipe, as many of my recipes are, was an accident. I’d bought the dill for a chicken recipe I cooked earlier in the week. For the salmon, I tried to make a hollandaise which split because the dog made it away with my slipper and I had to catch her before it ended up at the bottom of the garden. So, there was no rescuing the hollandaise it looked a bit like yellowing cottage cheese. I remembered I had the last straggly pieces of dill in the fridge and used this up to make this recipe. Since then I’ve made it for all sorts of dishes and it works well with almost anything.


Good quality mayonnaise 6 tbsp
Greek yogurt 6 tbsp
Lemon 1/2
plus grated peel of half Lemon
Fresh Dill 2 tbsp chopped (or dried if you don’t have fresh)


Start by chopping your dill finely. Then grate the peel from half a lemon and add them to a bowl.
Squeeze in the juice from half a lemon, then add the mayonnaise and the yogurt and a pinch of salt. Mix together well and decant into a serving dish. Top with a sprinkle of finely chopped dill.
