If you love the taste of vinegar on grilled fish, you’ll love Kim Tucker’s Creamy Balsamic Dill Drizzle for cedar plank grilled salmon!

Using a mini-whisk or spoon, mix up:

3 Tablespoons Duke’s Olive Oil Mayo
3 Tablespoons Bertolli Balsamic Vinegar of Modina (add more or less for desired consistency)
1 Tablespoon Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pinch of sugar
2-3 sprigs of freshly chopped dill (dried dill works too…just use less)
Sea salt & fresh cracked pepper to taste
Lemon wedges

Mix ingredients vigorously until creamy. Drizzle over plated cedar plank grilled salmon, and top with another fresh green sprig of dill and a lemon wedge… Enjoy!

PS: crispy edges on the salmon are a must! Can be used on veggie kabobs or other seafood as well!
