Make this sour cream salad dressing flavored with dill or your favorite herb. Then pour it over lettuce for one of our traditional German spring salad recipes. I use this for mixed salads, lettuce salads, even cucumber salads.

My favorite and my family's favorite is a salad dressing that is a bit sweet and sour and flavored with dill, preferably fresh.

Oma's Lettuce Salad with Sour Cream Dressing ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 1 head lettuce, washed
  • 1 lemon
  • 1½ cups sour cream
  • sugar, salt, pepper
  • 1 bunch of dill, chopped finely

Instructions:

  • Tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces.
  • Grate lemon before juicing it.
  • In a small bowl, mix the grated lemon peel, about 4 Tbsp lemon juice, sour cream, dill, and about 2 - 3 Tbsp sugar. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour dressing over salad, toss, and serve immediately.
  • Serves 4.

Hints:

  • Don't have a whole lemon? Use about 4 Tbsp lemon juice instead and omit the grated peel.
  • Instead of sour cream, use plain or Greek yogurt.

Prep your Lettuce properly ...

  • An important note to remember when making a lettuce salad is to make sure you wash the lettuce carefully.
  • Then, it needs to be dried.
  • Use either a salad-spinner or paper towels.

If water remains on the lettuce leaves, it will dilute the cream sauce, and that would be a shame. It's so utterly wunderbar!

Heidi's Hints:

My dear German friend, Heidi, who comes from northern Germany, shared her recipe for this dressing, but she uses heavy cream instead of the sour cream. Mix it up real good with the lemon juice and it will almost 'whip' up a bit. Yummy!

YES! This is the Cucumber Salad Dressing!

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!

This is the Dill-Rahm-Sosse that's so popular in Germany!
