Homemade Tartar Sauce

So many recipes are made out of necessity; I was at my mother’s for lunch and she had leftover fish but no tartar sauce and alas this recipe was born (you can’t have a fish sandwich without tartar sauce… in my world anyway!).

Makes just over ½ cup

¼ Cup light mayonnaise

¼ Cup fat free sour cream

Juice of half a lemon

1 tbsp capers

1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped

1 Small pickle (I used Kosher Dill)

1 tsp grainy Dijon mustard

Pinch salt

Pinch pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine (or use a blender or an immersion blender); you want everything mixed but the capers and pickles stills a little chunky.

Taste and adjust seasoning.

Notes:

  1. Use whatever pickles you have on hand.
  2. You can use white wine vinegar in place of lemon juice, start with a tsp and then taste and adjust gauge whether or not you need more acid.
