  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle or sweet relish
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • pinch granulated sugar (omit if using sweet relish)
  • kosher salt to taste, optional


  • In a small mixing bowl, use a rubber spatula to stir together the mayo, relish, lemon juice, dill, and sugar.
    Stir until well blended.
  • Season the mixture to taste with the kosher salt.
  • Transfer the mixed Tartar Sauce to a food storage container (or cover the bowl in plastic) and store in the fridge for 30 minutes. This gives the sauce's flavors a chance to meld together.
