Dill

This dynamic herb is so much more than a garnish! Fresh dill leaves offer a tangy, sweet flavor making them a great addition to many kinds of dishes. Dill is most often associated with pickles, fish, and salad dressings, but can be added to plain yogurt and chopped cucumber to make a cool yogurt dip, or combined with pine nuts, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil for a delicious pesto sauce.
