The quickest, easiest tartar sauce

This super easy tartar sauce is made out of ingredients you’ll most likely find sitting in your fridge. It’s so quick to make why would you buy a store-bought version?!

Honestly, I came up with this recipe because I needed a sauce to top off my crab cakes and I let me tell you, I absolutely blew myself away. I’m quite picky when it comes to my tartar sauce and this one really hit the mark. It’s a must have for me with my fish and chips and most other fried seafood.

Variations:

To make this recipe vegan, simply use a vegan mayonnaise and relish!

A Polish strawberry sauce…

This is definitely not your average snack or meal. I’ve never heard of anyone eating something like this other than my Polish family and my boyfriend’s Polish family. I think it’s just an easy and delicious way to save fresh strawberries from going bad, so here you are! I honestly couldn’t think of a more creative name for it, so let’s stick to what it is, a fresh strawberry sauce.

It’s interesting how different families from different regions from Poland enjoy this sauce differently. My family traditionally serves this sauce over rice, while my boyfriend’s family serves it over a curly egg noodle. Both are delicious, so it really comes down to what you prefer!

How to make it

This is so easy to make and will be done in just a few minutes, but the key is to use fresh strawberries! Strawberry season is just about to come to an end here in Southern Ontario after it’s late start this year. Luckily, we managed to make it out to Herrle’s farm to handpick a few pints of some fresh strawberries. That’s what’s so special about this dish, is that you can really only enjoy it for about a month every year (at least here in Ontario).

Once your remove all the leaves/strawberry tails, mash them up. Again, based on your preference, you can leave the sauce a little more chunky or mash them until there are no chunks at all. When adding sugar, add a little at a time and taste as you go. If your strawberries are already quite sweet, you won’t need as much. Add some sugar and sour cream and you’re ready to serve!
