Homemade Dill Dressing

Ever since Sonia posted the flies and swims recipe, I’ve had cravings for dill. Weird, I know. I’ve never given dill a second thought (why would I?). But it was so refreshing, I want it in all the recipes! So it got me thinking, how hard could it be to make a dill dressing? I got a little “epicurious” and found a simple recipe for it, but my own spin on it is below. It’s the perfect compliment to our kale and quinoa salad (recipe coming soon!).

*Makes about 2 cups of dressing.

  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise (please don’t use Miracle Whip. I usually love the stuff but it def doesn’t work for this. Trust me, I tried it with the first batch.)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Whisk the mayo, sour cream, and heavy cream first, then blend in the rest of the ingredients. I stored mine in a cute mason jar so it will last a little longer. And who doesn’t love mason jars these days?!

My Taste Buds’ Soul Mate: Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I wish I could describe to you the love I have for this pizza. I love it almost as much as truffle oil. Almost. And for any other pizza lover out there (or foodies, or even those who don’t really love food but you of course need to eat – aka EVERYONE) this pizza is for you.

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • ¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 pack of frozen spinach
  • 1 can of drained artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1 tubes of pizza crust (I tend to use Pillsbury, but anything works)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and cook the crust according to the directions on the tube. Then in a medium saucepan on low heat add all of the creams – heavy cream, butter, and cream cheese.  Add in the parmesan and garlic powder and let simmer for 15 minutes, occasionally stirring. 

In the meantime, cook the frozen spinach. Once cooked and drained, add it to the simmering sauce. When it’s fully combined, spread on to the pizza crust, and top it with the artichokes and mozzarella. Bake for 15 minutes/ until the cheese is golden brown. Last step – fall in love with the deliciousness.
