Mayonnaise and Summer Dill Dip

Posted by: Site Administrator  :  Category: side dish

This is a dill dip similar to those you find in veggie trays or in the produce department at the store, and it’s way cheaper to make yourself from scratch, and it’s tastier.


  • Wire whisk or hand blender
  • small bowl (1qt should be fine)


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1.5 Tbsp dried dill weed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt

put the egg yolk, water, lemon juice, garlic, and salt into the bowl and blend until smooth. add a little bit of the oil and emulsify. slowly add the oil and blend until smooth.

(Congratulations, you’ve just made mayonnaise!)

Add the sour cream and the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Let sit for an hour or two for the flavors to blend. Serve with your favourite veggies.

If you’re scaling this recipe up, you don’t need to add an extra egg yolk – a single egg yolk is enough to make several cups of mayo.
