If you have never made your own tartar sauce, you are in for a treat. As with most things, the homemade version is leaps and bounds above the store-bought version, both in taste and nutrition. You only need a few ingredients and a couple of minutes.
Where do the probiotics come from?
This tartar sauce uses a lacto-fermented mayo, but any homemade mayo or high quality store-bought mayo will do. (You will lose out on some probiotics, however.) Don’t despair if that is the case because more probiotics come from the lacto-fermented pickles. Bubbies is a popular brand that is in the refrigerated section of most larger grocery stores. Be sure to buy pickles from the refrigerated section. If you don’t, they are not lacto-fermented and do not contain probiotics. Next up, you can choose from lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, or Kombucha. And finally, fresh dill is best, but dried will work.
