Instead of making this Italian condiment completely from scratch, start with store-bought mayonnaise and jazz it up with capers, anchovies, oil-packed tuna, and lemon juice. Serve with our showstopping Shrimp and Crudite Platter.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed

  • 2 small anchovies, rinsed and mashed (1 ½ teaspoons)

  • 1 jar (7 ounces) oil-cured tuna, drained

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Puree first five ingredients with 1 teaspoon water in a blender until smooth. With blender running, add oil in a steady stream. Refrigerate in an airtight container at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.
