I've been using this recipe for years and have tweaked to our liking. Original recipe had 1/2 tsp each of parsley and chives and we felt that let the dill overpower the whole. I also added the parmesan cheese for a bit of texture and smoothness of the dresing. If after chilling the dressing is too thick to your liking, whisk in some milk or buttermilk to thin it out. This also makes a fantastic veggie dip.
