Here's What You'll Need to Make Tartar Sauce
Dairy-free tartar sauce is so quick and easy to make at home, you'll never have to add it to the shopping list again! Let's get started . . .
Vegenaise: Mayonnaise made without eggs is easy to find these days. I use Vegenaise and our family and friends love it more than the classic version. It's a simple swap.
Capers: small, salty, slightly sweet, sour, green pickled flower buds that are little flavour bombs. After creamy Vegenaise, capers are a must for an authentic tartar sauce.
Pickles: Our family enjoys the flavour from dill pickles in our tartar sauce. However, gherkin pickles also add a uniquely delicious flavour and crunch with a hint of sweetness. Which is your favourite?
Horseradish: the secret ingredient I add that amps up the flavour and makes this tartar sauce super special! You can get that potent punch of spicy flavour from freshly grated horseradish or a creamy prepared horseradish condiment.
Herbs: chopped parsley or dill add lots of flavor and freshness.
Tips for Making Vegan Tartar Sauce
To make the tartar sauce, simply chop up the veggies and herbs, stir them into the wet ingredients, then start slathering it on everything.
