Tips and Variations
Makes a great sandwich with whole wheat bread, tomato, lettuce, and onions.
Substitute 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder for the garlic clove, 5-10 crushed saltine crackers for the bread, or 1/3 cup finely chopped white onion for the green onion.
For extra flavor add a dash of hot sauce or cayenne pepper, or sprinkle some Parmesan cheese.
For a quick dill dipping sauce mix 1/2 cup fat free mayo with 1 1/2 teaspoons dill. Add horseradish if desired.
