Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce

Zucchini Quinoa Patties | In Jennie's Kitchen

  1. When I was assigned a project to create these Zucchini Quinoa Fritters, it included a request for a dill dipping sauce. The parameters were either using sour cream or mayonnaise. Given my distaste for mayo (honestly, even saying the word freaks me out), the choice was clear. Sour cream it would be. 

I’m chuckling as I write this, wondering where Matthew would stand on this dipping sauce. I’ve been lucky enough to find a partner in this life who detests mayo as much as I do. He, however, takes it a step further, and I suspect anything that remotely seems it could be confused for mayonnaise is off the table (or out the window, as he says). We’re not alone in our hatred of mayo.

But I digress, as usual. Should you be a dipping sauce fan, and need a mayo-free alternative, this Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce is the answer. It’s perfect with these Zucchini Quinoa Patties or their cousin, Broccoli Quinoa Patties. I suppose you can even use them for these Homemade Chicken Nuggets (but I’m more of honey mustard girl).
