  • Dill Dip

    More than just a dip, this blend is also tasty on chicken, salmon, and other seafood.



Cook pasta according to package directions then drain, rinse with cold water and set aside to cool. If using Tarragon Shallot or Capitol Hill, place in small dish with 2 tsp. water and let sit for about 5 min. to rehydrate; Dill Dip doesn’t need to rehydrate. Place salmon in a bowl and break into fine bits with a fork. Stir in mayonnaise, dressing and mustard; you want this on the soupy side. Add celery and seasoning then fold in cooked pasta. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Cover and chill at least an hour or more if you have time.
