Tartar-Like Sauce

I’m calling this “tartar-like sauce” because I don’t really know what it is. Well, it’s the sauce listed with this recipe but changed a whole bunch to fit what I have in my refrigerator and to reduce the fat.

Whatever this mixture is, it tastes DELICIOUS! I might just have to use it as a dip for a bunch of different things. I combined light mayonnaise and fat free plain yogurt as the base for the sauce but if you don’t happen to have fat free plain yogurt around, you can just sub more mayonnaise in it’s place.

A side note on mayo: Not all light mayonnaise is created equal! If you’ve tried it and don’t like it, you may have just tried the wrong one. Honestly, Hellman’s light mayonnaise is the only one that I’ll eat. As a matter of fact, it tastes so good that I can’t tell the difference between it and it’s full fat friend. And, no, they did not pay me or send me free stuff to say that.
