This takes only minutes to whip up but *must* be prepared a minimum of 3 hours before serving, longer is even better ;-) I have to say that I have made this using other brands of sweet relish, only Bick's relish seems to work best for this, you will see the difference if you use a different brand! My DH loves this with fish, but it also makes a great sandwich dressing too! Use only mayonnaise for this not salad dressing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 236.59 ml mayonnaise (use Hellman's for this)
  • 59.14 ml sweet pickle relish (Bick's relish is best)
  • 2.46 ml garlic powder (or use 1-2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic to taste)


  1. Mix all three ingredients together adjusting the relish and garlic powder amounts to taste.
  2. Cover and chill for a minimum of 2 hours before serving.
  3. Delicious!
