Double-Dill Homemade Tartar Sauce
Double-Dill Homemade Tartar Sauce is easy enough to make in minutes, and I love grilled or roasted fish with this delicious low-carb tartar sauce!
Before I talk about how easy it is to make this Double-Dill Homemade Tartar Sauce, how do you feel about tartar sauce? I’m sure some food snobs consider it to be a very boring and ordinary condiment, but I absolutely love tartar sauce and don’t think I’d ever pass it up in a restaurant if I was having some kind of mild-flavored fish. Unfortunately, most tartar sauce is a long way from being diet friendly for most any type of diet.
But lately I’ve been really trying to eat more fish, which got me thinking about how much I love tartar sauce, so I decided to try to come up with a tasty diet-friendly tartar sauce recipe that didn’t have sugar and was loaded with flavor. It took a bit of experimenting, but this Double-Dill Homemade Tartar Sauce recipe combines Greek Yogurt, mayo, dill weed, capers, and dill pickle relish or chopped dill pickles, and it’s not only easy-to-make, it’s as delicious as any tartar sauce I’ve ever tasted. You can use full-fat or low-fat dairy, whichever fits with your way of eating, and this delicious homemade tartar sauce will go with most any kind of fish.
I’m not kidding when I say that this delicious tartar sauce recipe might be a good reason to cook some fish, and here’s a collection of Low-Carb Fish and Seafood Recipes to give you plenty of options! And if you like tartar sauce as much as I do, I bet you’ll love this recipe.

How to make this tasty sauce:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe, including nutritional information.)
- You’ll need Greek yogurt, mayo, chopped capers, dill pickle relish or dill pickles, and dill weed.
- I originally made this with a spice blend called Bon Appetit, but now that is no longer available so I use Beau Monde Seasoning (affiliate link).
- Measure out the greek yogurt and mayo.
- Add the chopped capers, dill pickle relish, dill weed, and Beau Monde Seasoning.
- You can whisk the ingredients together in a bowl, but I blended them in the bowl attachment of my Immersion Blender (affiliate link).
- That’s all there is to it! The finished tartar sauce should look quite chunky, and have a pronounced dill flavor with a bit of tang from the yogurt and a little creaminess from the mayo.

Use sour cream if you prefer. Use full-fat or reduced-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream, but higher-fat products will usually have less carbs. Use full-fat or light mayo, but full-fat mayo will have less carbs. Be sure to use dill pickle relish without sugar (or use finely chopped dill pickles if you prefer; I love to use my favorite dill pickles for this recipe.) This makes 1 1/4 cups tartar sauce; serving size for nutritional information is two tablespoons.
