Creamy Dill Sauce (Magic Sauce)

Creamy dill sauce with my chicken on rice dish.

I realized today that the creamy dill sauce (or, as my good friend put it, Magic) I included with the chicken on rice recipe needs to be on its own since it can be used with several other recipes. It was a smashing success with chicken shawarama as well. So here it is, on its own page.

Enjoy, and don't eat it all at once, because I know you will.

Creamy Dill Sauce
  • 1-1/4 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tbsp lemon juice or juice from half a lemon 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1-2 tsp dill
  • 1 tbsp water
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix thoroughly.

  1. Hi Dan
    Great idea to publish the sauce recipe alone because now you have me thinking that I could use the sauce for a variety of vegetarian dishes- maybe over hard boiled eggs, tofu or even with falafel.. great recipe..

  2. Yes, it'd be great for felafel too, if you're not already putting prepared tehina on there. I hadn't thought about this sauce with shawarama until recently and it really, really worked.

  3. I adore dill in a sauce... especially in Greek food!

  4. wow, that sounds like a great sauce and even a dip :)

  5. I love dill. I remember walking out to my mom's garden just to get a whiff of it. I also agree it would be great for Falafal. I'm actually craving it now. ;)

  6. I need some Magic sauce!! It does sound like a perfectly wonderful sauce...I may drizzle it on pretty much anything :D
