1.  Mix the shallot and vinegar in a small bowl with the salt and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the sour cream and mustard. Adjust the seasonings, adding more vinegar or mustard to taste if needed.

Cooks' note:
Some easy variations:
- Add shredded, blanched celery root to the gratin.
- Add 2 to 3 ounces grated or crumbled cheese, such as aged Gouda, Gruyere, Reblochon, feta, or a sharp aged Cheddar. Omit the dill with cheeses other than Cheddar.
- Use tarragon with some snipped chives in place of dill.
