Total time
Classic tartar sauce spiced up with three tasty variations.
Serves: 1 cup
For Classic Tartar Sauce:
  • 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1⁄4 cup finely chopped Vlasic Farmer’s Garden Kosher Dill Spears
  • 1⁄4 cup pickled vegetables, finely chopped
Tuscan Tartar Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch red pepper flakes
South-of-the Border Tartar Sauce:
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon chipotle powder
Thai Tartar Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon green or red chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  1. Combine mayonnaise, pickles and vegetables in medium bowl.
  2. Stir in variations of your choice, or just stick with the original. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Serve with cooked shrimp*, fish, crab cakes or on a sandwich.
  4. *To cook my shrimp, I simply placed a pound of cleaned shrimp in a hot pain with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt and a bit of fresh pepper and cooked them over medium heat for 8 minutes or so, until bright pink and opaque. Serve the shrimp hot or cold, depending in your preference (I chose cold and chilled them until ready to serve).
