Make this sour cream salad dressing flavored with dill. Then pour it over lettuce for one of our traditional German spring salad recipes. Here it's shown as a side to German cabbage rolls and oven-roasted mashed potatoes.
My favorite and my family's favorite is a salad dressing that is a bit sweet and sour and flavored with dill, preferably fresh.
If water remains on the lettuce leaves, it will dilute the cream sauce, and that would be a shame. It's so utterly wunderbar!
The scrambled eggs with ham recipe? It's right here!
This dressing, and variations of it, are traditional for a cucumber salad, but tastes so great on a lettuce salad as well. That was, to me, a "eureka" moment when I tried it for the first time.
I mean, it was THE dressing that always went on the cucumber salad. In fact, any dressing left over in the bowl after all the cucumbers slices were removed, was quickly scooped up by whoever got there first.
Why I never thought of putting over a lettuce salad really dumbfounds me. But the first time I did, it became a favorite!
