what to do with dill

Suddenly had an urge to buy some but haven't a clue what exactly to do with it. So far I've just been sniffing it. Please help me get my head out of the bag.

  1. Anything from fish, potatoes, or eggs.

    Tuna salad, egg salad, omelet, baked fish, potato salad, boiled potatoes.

    If the bunch can't be used up, chop it finely and mix with a small amount of mayo to preserve it for use soon in the future,

    1. Dill is wonderful with both salmon and potatoes. Serve a cucumber/dill raita with salmon. Toss buttered boiled potatoes with dill.

          1. I did the same thing last week because I saw Jamie at Home making warm dill potato salad...which I could not get out of my head, it was really good btw. I then still had a ton left so I made a cottage cheese yeast bread with dill and then threw a ton into my leftover salmon to make salmon cakes! Sad to admit after all that I still have a bit left but think I am all dilled out....

            oh, and I just also re-found this in my favorites...

            1. Two nice summery things to do with dill:

              Cucumber salad--slice 2 or 3 kirbycucmbers, sliver up some red onion, and mix with a sauce made of sour cream, with white vinegar and sugar added to taste to make it sweet and sour, and lots of dill.

              Eggplant--saute slices of eggplant, or brush with oil and bake. Make a sauce of yogurt, chopped garlic and dill, and spoon over the eggplant. Can be eaten hot, cold, or room temperature.

                I always recommend this cucumber salad...similar to the one above but no sour cream. Add some red onion.

                  Here's another cucumber and dill salad, with mustard, that I love:
