There’s no reason why tartar sauce should come from a jar. Whenever we make anything that a tartar sauce will complement, I make a small batch that will be used soon. I never do it the same way twice, but this should give you an idea about the possibilities. This one gets an added zip from cayenne, sweetness from tomatoes, and the unique exotic flavor of capers.

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbs. tomatoes, skin, seeds, and pulp removed, chopped
  • 1/2 Tbs. very small capers
  • 1 tsp. sweet relish, drained
  • 1 tsp. dill relish, drained
  • 1/2 tsp. horseradish
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice, strained
  • Cayenne pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients an hour or two before serving to allow flavors to combine.

Makes about a cup.
