Sweeter Tartar Sauce

"Summertime... and the living is easy... fish are jumping... and the cotton is high....." Hopefully most of you will recognize those ever-popular lyrics (and uh, don't hate me for getting it stuck in your head, cuz it's in mine too so we're in this together!) but summertime is a great time to enjoy seafood! Fish on the grill is amazing - whether it's salmon or catfish, cod or mahi mahi....

Many people like their fish with tartar sauce and boy do I have a vast collection of tartar sauces! This one uses Miracle Whip and powdered sugar, which I find interesting but an excellent idea to use the confectioner's sugar to give the sauce a smooth texture and not gritty like most sugars. I've not made this one because with the amount of sugar in it, it seems very sweet to me and I like my tartar sauce more more well, tart! LOL. But if you like a sweet sauce this one might be for you.

1/3 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
2/3 cup Sour cream
1/4 cup powdered Sugar
3 t sweet white onion, chopped fine
2 t sweet pickle relish from jar with the relish juice
3 t carrot, chopped fine
1/4 t salt

Chop the onion in fine (in a processor works great) and set aside. Chop carrot in food processor, and add to onion. Mix in remaining ingredients and stir by hand to blend thoroughly. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.Print Friendly and PDF
