Have you ever had honey dill sauce? It's a deliciously simple mix of mayonnaise, honey, and dill.
And it was 'invented' in my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The story of how it came to be was something I learned after doing a bit of research on honey dill sauce. I had no idea that it was made up by a restaurant owner in my hometown (Love the restaurant too - Mitzi's if you're interested. The link is to their Facebook page, I don't think they have a website. Have the chicken fingers if you go there.)
Anyway, I think the story goes that the couple went out for dinner one night and ate a dip that they couldn't stop thinking about later. Upon trying to recreate it, they accidentally created this sauce. I'm so glad they did. (I've read their recipe uses dried mustard and lemon. I keep mine to the three main ingredients. I like it that way.)

I don’t live in Winnipeg anymore so I JUST tried (and heard of) this sauce this summer when we went back - thank you for the simple recipe, this is the closest to the one I tried and it’s great!
Hi! I'm so happy this recipe was a good copycat 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment!
