Guests at our house love our homemade tartar sauce and regularly ask where we bought it.
You’ll be delighted that you can make it at home with ingredients you probably have on hand, and it will stay fresh in your refrigerator for at least eight weeks (three weeks if you use fresh dill).
If you do opt to use fresh dill, double the amount called for in the recipe.
1 heaping tsp dried DILL
1 cup MAYONAISE
2 baby DILL PICKLES
1/8 tsp BLACK PEPPER
1. DICE THE PICKLES
Try and hold the pickle together while you do this. Slice the pickle four times lengthwise, then rotate the pickle 90 degrees and slice twice lengthwise. Then chop the pickle starting at one end crosswise. This will dice it into small pieces.
2. COMBINE THE INGREDIENTS
In a half-pint mason jar or similar, add the diced pickles, mayonnaise, dill, and black pepper. Stir with a spoon to combine.
