I never liked fish growing up, but my parents forced me to eat it quite regularly. The only way I could get it down was to drown it in tartar sauce!

Making your own vegan tartar sauce at home is so easy, plus it tastes a million times better than a store-bought jar. Use tartar sauce on all the vegan “fishy” foods (recipe coming in a few days for Vegan Fish Sticks!).

Ingredients

  • Vegan Mayo – I used my cashew based vegan mayo, but you can use a store-bought version if you’d like.
  • Dill Pickles – chopped very fine, OR use dill pickle relish
  • Dried or Fresh Dill
  • Lemon Juice

How to make it

It couldn’t be easier! Just throw everything into a bowl, and give it a stir. Keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

What to serve tartar sauce with?

  • Vegan Fish Sticks (recipe coming, stay tuned!)
  • A dip for fries (try my Oven Roasted Potato Wedges)
  • Any vegan “fishy” recipes or products, homemade or packaged, such as Gardein Fishless Fillets, Quorn Fishless Sticks, etc.

Notes

  1. Nutritional information is an estimate only and was calculated using store bought vegan mayo, not homemade. The homemade version will be less calories and fat.
  2. I like using my homemade Vegan Mayo in the recipe, but you can use store bought vegan mayo as well.
  3. To make it even easier, you can substitute dill pickle relish for the chopped dill pickles.
