Dijon Tartar Sauce

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"Fat-free mayonnaise mixed only with pickle relish seemed so tasteless, so I began experimenting and came up with my own recipe for tartar sauce. It adds lots of flavor to fish, but a few calories. --Kristen Flaherty of South Portland, Maine"

This was excellent. I did however use dill relish instead of sweet, as I always do it is a personal preference. I will be making this again. Thanks for something different for a change.

I'm sorry to be the one person that didn't care for this recipe, but the flavors just didn't work for us. The dijon really overpowered the sauce.

Yum! Yet another excellent TOH recipe (this is also printed in one of my annual TOH / Light & Tasty cookbooks)!!! It literally took me FIVE minutes to prep this! And, despite other's suggestions...

I skipped the chopped onion and sugar and it was still great!

what an awesome tartar sauce! used this on "Salmon Cakes II" from this site. Very yummy.

Awesome! This is a slightly sweet, old fashioned type of tartar sauce. I can't wait to try it on battered haddock. Had it today with Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon. It isn't as thick as the stock pi...

I took the advice and didn't add the extra sugar. GREAT taste. What a wonderful alternative to traditional tartar sauces. The kids loved it.

We really like this sauce! Rather than fat-free mayo I used Hellman's/Best Foods Canola Mayo because that's what I have on hand. Since I didn't have a lemon I used an 1/8 tsp. of lemon pepper....

A little too sweet with the sweet relish AND the sugar. I'd either use dill relish or cut the sugar next time. It was still pretty good though...nice change to the normal tartar.
