Dill is a feathery green herb that packs an amazing amount of flavor that skirts the edges of grassy and anise. Like chervil, dill is delicate and works particularly well with eggs or in salads.
Look for bunches of dill with fresh-cut stems and un-wilted leaves. Once home, store dill loosely wrapped in plastic in the fridge and use with a day or two—dill tends to wilt and get mushy rather quickly after it's been picked.
Because it has such a unique taste, a small amount of dill can go a long way, which is why dill is so good to use as a garnish, especially on Beet Cabbage Borscht, Chilled Beet Soup, or Cold Yogurt Cucumber Soup.
