How to make dill dijon mustard sauce

- Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl.

Notes on the recipe
Many mustard sauces call for red wine vinegar. I find that the lemon juice provides enough acidity, so I don’t use it. And the garlic and dill add plenty of flavor.
I wanted to use almond milk to balance the heaviness of the cream cheese. It also lessens the amount of dairy in the recipe for those of us that are trying to cut back.
Variations for this mustard dill sauce
There are a few variations you can make to this dijon mustard sauce recipe. This may be helpful for those with allergies or taste preferences.
- Fresh dill versus dried dill: If you don’t have fresh dill but have dried dill, you can use that instead. You’ll use about ⅓ the amount.
- Substitute almond milk: If you don’t like almond milk or have a nut allergy, coconut milk or a mix of heavy cream and water can be used instead.
- Dairy-free: To replace the cream cheese, use Kite Hill or Daiya cream cheese.
With these few simple switches, you can make the perfect creamy dijon dill sauce for you.
What to eat with creamy dill mustard
This versatile recipe is a great way to add flavor to so many dishes.
I love using it with my keto salmon patties, which only take a few minutes to make. Easy salmon patties + easy creamy dill mustard = great weeknight dinner.
The flavors are a wonderful compliment for salmon or any other fish. If you’re looking for something that doesn’t include fish, try pouring it over chicken to add some tangy creaminess!
It would also be great in my mock cauliflower low carb potato salad. Just use the dijon dill sauce in place of the mayonnaise, sour cream, and vinegar mixture.
You honestly can’t go wrong.
