Dill doesn’t always have to serve as pungent accent. True dill lovers know it can perform the lead role deliciously.

A pesto made with two cups of dill lends extraordinary freshness to a bowl of pasta. The pesto rolled up with smoked salmon and cucumber makes an hors d’oeuvre worthy of a sterling party tray. Or spread it on bread and gobble it up in the kitchen when nobody is looking.

A cup of dill folded into an easy biscuit recipe gives the day an elegant start or that little something extra when tea is not enough. When summer heat bears down, 2 tablespoons of just-picked dill turns a chilled cucumber soup into a spring-fed pool of flavor.

For the best presentation as a garnish, snip the ferny leaves from the stalks with sharp scissors. But if it’s just the flavor you want, you can leave the smaller stalks and chop them finely.
