Nearly every time we buy a jar of tartar sauce at the store, we wind up tossing it out because it expires before we can use it all. Now we just make it ourselves. It tastes better, is super fresh, and it makes the perfect amount for one dinner. Best of all, it is really easy to prepare. Serve it with fish, French fries, or even on top of your favorite burger.

PREP TIME: 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise
  • 1 zesty dill pickle spear, diced
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon nonpareil capers, rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse-ground country Dijon mustard
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place all ingredients in a small food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse several times until combined. Transfer to a resealable jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

YIELD: 3/4 cup
