    Wonderful salad dressing if you like lemon and dill that is.... If you don't then this really isn't for you. That being said, I cut the recipe in half and used 3/4 cup of Hellman's lite mayo and recplaced the other 1/4 cup with with lite sour cream. If you want to go a little less heavy on the dill you can get away with just 1 Tbsp of that. This is one of those recipes that you can play around with a bit so if you love lemon go with the full 1/4 cup if not go with 2 Tbsp. and use 2 Tbsp. of buttermilk in place of the rest of the lemon juice. I also added 1/4 tsp. of salt. I would not muddy this up with the addition of garlic. This was great over mixed greens. I can also see this as a great veggie dip or dare I be so bold as to say a really simple and tasty potato salad dressing for red skinned potatoes with the addition of some green onion.....I'll have to give it a try some time!  -  15 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Good basic recipe, but needed just a touch of salt and garlic to really bring it to life. Great on salads and I also use it as a coating for baking fish.  -  11 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
