Dill is unique – it is very aromatic, and has a delicate flavour that is mildly sweetish. This makes it a wonderful addition to salad dressings, especially when combined with a peppy ingredient like lemon. This lemony dressing has a mixed flavour, thanks to the teamwork of lemon juice and rind, dill leaves and mustard paste, balanced by other ingredients like sugar, salt and oils.

The Lemon Dill Dressing not only improves the flavour and aroma of your salad, but also gives it a wonderful mouth-feel. Make a batch of this dressing, and store it in the fridge in an airtight glass jar for three or four days.
