This is a very easy and quick tartar sauce that can be made as needed, instead of making a larger batch that may not get eaten if you don't use it very often.

Commercially prepared Tartar Sauce is loaded with a number of ingredients that gluten free eaters need to avoid. Most varieties also have some additives that cause digestive upset.

This version is prepared without vinegar, as it takes a bit more work to find truly gluten free, and non reactive vinegar, that those eating gluten free can safely eat.

Use all organic ingredients, ensure any dried spices are labeled certified gluten free and ensure any packaged items are labeled gluten free.

1/2 cup Homemade Mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt
1 to 2 tablespoons Yellow Mustard
1 to 3 teaspoons Fresh lemon juice or white wine
1 Green onion, including the white part, diced
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Dairy free: Don't use yogurt. Instead use dairy free mayonnaise such as our recipe for Homemade Mayonnaise.
  • Egg free: Use Greek yogurt instead of the mayonnaise.
  • Juice the lemon and cut up green onion.
  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard and green onions. Add lemon juice to make the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Serve with Deep Fried Fish.
