The sun is shining, breeze is blowing, I’m grilling salmon burgers…but I forgot the sauce. S**t. I know this has happened to all of you at least once (me, more than I’d like to admit). I’m not one to just up and run to the store, so what did I do? Made my own of course!
I never gave a second thought as to what goes in to tartar sauce, but it’s a lot easier than you think. I’m almost positive you already have all of the ingredients.Plus, I don’t know about you, but I could never use a whole bottle of the stuff before it expires. So the next time you’re cooking and have an “oh, s**t” moment, don’t panic!
- 1/2 cup mayo (Miracle Whip if you like it really tangy, Hellmann’s if you like it creamier)
- 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
- 1 tsp yellow mustard
- 1 tsps minced onion (if you don’t have it, don’t worry about it)
- 2 tsps lemon juice
Mix it all together, and I mean really blend it. Put a dollop on your salmon burger (or fish tacos) and you’ve officially saved yourself a trip to the store.
Happy Eating, XO
