GO Tartar Sauce

My partner Charles and I both grew up with homemade tartar sauce as a fixture. His father Bland made his with plenty of capers and dill. The cook at my grandmother's beach house, Ruth, made hers with sliced green olives. For the GO we decided to combine both these ideas with for the best tartar sauce ever! I guarantee you will never go back to the jarred stuff!

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon capers
3 tablespoons pickle relish
3 tablespoons pureed olives
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill
Pinch of cayenne

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir thoroughly.

YIELD: About 1 1/2 cups

P.S. Come try this out at the GO with our Mustard Fried Catfish!


  1. Not to mention another nice alternative French Fry dip.

    Congrats on the blog Sarah, good luck with it.

    Miss you and much love from Miami!

  2. Tartar and cocktail and two of the simplest sauces to whip up on your own, and there's really no reason for anyone to buy the stuff in a jar. For cocktail sauce, I simply stir together ketchup, prepared horseradish, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. It takes less than 60 seconds. Your tartar sauce recipe looks similarly simple to whip up, and delicious, too. I'll have to give it a shot.
