No Relish Tartar Sauce - With Light Mayo
photo by lazyme
- Ready In:
- 1 cup light mayonnaise, your favourite
- 6 baby pickles (or one small pickle would suffice, I use pickles in garlic as opposed to dill)
- 1 tablespoon capers
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 green onion
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon tarragon (optional)
- salt and pepper
- Add the ingredients to your blender, magic bullet or food processor and blend until smooth! Adjust seasoning with salt & pepper if required. Between the store bought mayo and the pickle you likely won't need to add salt.
- Let it sit for an hour or so in the fridge before serving.

I am always delighted by simple recipes for kitchen basics, and this is no exception. While not entirely made from scratch, the end product is noticeably fresher tasting than its store bought compatriot. Especially so if you prefer your tartar sauce on the chunky side - the fresh pickles really add a satisfying crunch to the proceeding. The overall taste is more pungent as well. I can only imagine how this would taste with all homemade ingredients (or at least as far as is possible.)<br/><br/>I was unable to find garlic pickles, so had to use regular baby dills, and I accidentally bought no fat mayo, but it still tasted great. Recommended.
Very easy, and so much better than the jarred stuff! What I liked most about this recipe was the beautiful color- a nice light green. I'm not a pickle fan, so having them blended in (and not getting a bite of one) also helped make this a winner! I added fresh tarragon from the garden, and the flavor was wonderful. I served with fish and chips. Made for ZWT6.
