Watch out! If you like tartar sauce, I hope you loooooove this stuff…It’s pretty simple, but the amount and kind of ingredients are super important. Starting with the pickles. They MUST be Claussen dill pickles. A big fat cup of them. To chop them finely, slice them lengthwise first…and then horizontally to get a fine dice…and repeat after me….Claussen! LOL. Add a tablespoon of finely chopped sweet onion…
Dill – fresh or dried, and a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice…When I was first creating this recipe, at this point it was still missing something. So I pondered for a while…and then it hit me. RAW HONEY. Just a little…I mean a teeny bit. I added it, and…ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! It was so amazing! That did the trick. Just a little natural sweetness rounded everything else out, and married all the flavors perfectly…
And now you have the perfect dip for homemade Fish Sticks. Goodness, I even use it for a salad dressing!
- Put all ingredients into a bowl and stir together. If needed, add a little water to thin it out (like maybe a tablespoon).
- Refrigerate until ready to use. Enjoy!
