Tarragon Tartar Sauce

Makes 1 1/4 cups

Tartar sauce made at home stands far apart from the jarred kind. This herbed version is perfect for dunking fried shrimp -- and more.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 3 tablespoons sweet relish

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 3 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Stir together mayonnaise, relish, lemon juice, capers, tarragon, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.

Cook's Notes

Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container, up to 1 week.
