Hovmästarsås (Swedish mustard-dill sauce)

Hovmästarsås is my favorite accompaniment to gravlax and other fish and seafood. And it is very easy to make.

Makes about 3/4 cup

  • Dijon mustard — 1/4 cup
  • White or red wine vinegar — 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar — 1 tablespoon
  • Salt and pepper — a pinch of each
  • Vegetable oil — 1/2 cup
  • Fresh dill, chopped — 2-3 tablespoons
  1. Mix the mustard, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper together well in a medium-sized bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil.
  2. Stir in the chopped dill, adjust seasoning and serve chilled.

Try using other types of mustard, but avoid bright yellow mustards. Swedish-style mustard is mild and sweet. Adjust the amount of vinegar and sugar as needed.
