Comments

Dill is a favorite herb at our house.  This is a great recipe, but I wonder why you don't call for low-fat plain yogurt instead of the sour cream?  The same flavor, but a little extra protein and calcium. We always have low-fat plain yogurt on hand, but the sour cream would require a special purchase.

What a great and quick recipe!!  Everyone loved it!  And we served it with a spicy curry and it was a perfect match, adding a "cooler" taste to the plate to balance the spicy.  We didn't have dill and used oregano and garlic powder instead.
