5-Ingredient Mondays: Creamy Meyer Lemon Dill Sauce (Gluten/Dairy-Free)

Alta Mantsch is the voice behind Tasty Eats at Home, a gluten-free recipe blog that I have always admired. Her recipes are also dairy-free, and she strikes me as a master of flavor. Her recipes are often simple, but pair specific herbs and spices that maximize taste. This is exactly why I asked her to share a recipe for 5-Ingredient Mondays. Sometimes all it takes is a few ingredients to make a dish come together.

Want to share your recipe here too?

Here are the rules for 5-Ingredient Mondays:
  1. The dish must contain 5 ingredients or less. But to make it easier, pantry staples are not counted as ingredients. Neither are optional ingredients.
    1. Examples: salt, pepper, olive oil, baking soda, baking powder...basically if you think you would find the ingredient in any kitchen, you don't have to count it as one of your 5 ingredients. On the other hand, if it's a staple in your kitchen but not the average American's (i.e. coconut oil), count it. If you're unsure, go ahead and add the link. I'm not a stickler for rules!
  2. The dish must be gluten-free. Your recipe can be paleo, vegan, or anything in between. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Side dish or main dish. The purpose here is to create a place where you can come to find recipes that you know will be gluten-free and super simple. 
  3. You must leave a link to your own recipe that goes to that week's 5-Ingredient Monday post, not on this static page. 
Your recipes don't need to be from this week, so feel free to check your recipe list for your favorite recipes to share. I will sometimes share photos of the recipes with links back to your blog, so by sharing your recipe, you are giving me permission to use your photo and link back to your recipe. 

The linky will be live through noon on Thursday.

I am so excited about Iris’s newest blog carnival – 5-Ingredient Mondays. During busy weekdays, I often manage to get food on the table by relying on simple ingredient lists. I’ll make lamb chops and sweet potato puree as a simple and quick meal, neither of which take much time at all or require many ingredients. The same goes for this super-easy creamy dill sauce. A few ingredients thrown into a blender make a gorgeous addition to any number of foods, and it takes just a few minutes to make.

Here, I’m showing it spooned over a simple pan-seared salmon, but I’ve discovered it’s a wonderful dip for crudités, a perfect salad dressing, and I’d imagine it would be scrumptious as a dressing for chicken or tuna salad as well. You could also use it as a sauce for chicken breasts or any type of seafood. The sky is the limit on this one!

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until creamy. Serve with salmon, fish, chicken, or use as a dip or dressing. Keeps in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days.

Iris--Great description of Alta and her talents!

Alta--That sauce sounds amazing and I'm not even a fan of dill. But Meyer Lemon anything is wonderful. Love the idea of this sauce on salmon!

I linked up my BBC, Bourbon Banana Colada, my entry for the So Delicious recipe contest. :-)

Happy Monday, all! So glad you reminded us in your post, Alta. Somehow I always need a reminder. ;-)
