Paleo Foods: Dill

Dill highlights

Fresh dill adds a vibrant, clean taste to various dishes and cuts of meat. Dill is slightly sweet and bitter and pairs well with egg and potato salad dishes. The word dill is from the Norse word “dilla” which means “to lull” because it’s known to assist in digestive issues.
