Dilly-Horse Tarter Sauce

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Serves: 4 | Total Time: 5 Minutes

Tarter sauce is so easy. Just whip together some mayo, pickle relish, maybe some lemon juice and season it with salt and pepper. 

So. Easy!

But for anyone who knows me well, it is a given that I can never stick to the basics. I have to experiment; add something here, tweak a little there, and this tarter sauce recipe is no different!

The idea behind this tarter sauce stems from my thought that… dill and pickles go so well together and tarter sauce and fried fish go so well together… so wouldn’t it make sense that a dill-infused tarter sauce would go with fried fish?

Dill is mild, so I wanted to add some punch with a little horseradish. If you can get a hold of some home-grown horseradish and prepare it yourself, great! If not, store-bought is fine, just make sure it is straight up and not the creamy variety.
