Fresh, fragrant dill brings a touch of brightness to everything from smoked trout to Swedish potato salad to a chilled yogurt soup. These recipes don’t just use it as a garnish—they make the most of one of our favorite herbs.
Grilled Shallots with Dill (Schalottenlök i Folie)
Milder than their cousin the onion, shallots are ideal for grilling. For a midsummer cookout in Sweden, home cook Asa Johanson tosses shallots in butter and olive oil, wraps them in foil with dill, and cooks the package slowly on the grill until the shallots soften and caramelize, taking on a deep, sweet flavor.
For a twist on traditional sauerkraut, cookbook author Karen Solomon likes to soak Brussels sprouts in a briny mixture of peppercorn, dill, garlic, and chiles.
