Moga Farms Simple Dill Sauce

This simple dill sauce comes together in minutes with sweet white onion, white wine and fresh dill. The fresh dill sauce makes a perfect accompaniment to salmon and other seafood, pasta, lamb, chicken, roasted vegetables and more. Use it like a dip, dressing, marinade, or tartar sauce. For this recipe, Tristin used fresh dill from Moga Farms in La Conner.
