This delicious sour cream and dill dressing is the perfect topping for fresh sliced tomatoes, making a quick and easy side dish for any cookout or summer meal. Serve it with fresh, sliced cucumbers, with salmon fillets or croquettes, or along with a composed or chopped salad.

The dressing is a snap to put together. Just mix and refrigerate the sour cream dressing until you're ready to serve. Slice the tomatoes and arrange them on a plate with a small bowl of the sour cream dressing on the side for family or friends to serve themselves.
