  1. In a small bowl, mix the mustards, sugar, and vinegar. Whisk in the oil in a steady stream until the sauce is thick and well blended. Stir in the dill. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for later use.

Chef Tips

Look for “sweet and hot” or “Bavarian style” mustard at the store. If sweet mustard is not on hand, use all Dijon and taste for sugar — it may need additional sweetness.
