Home Made Tartare Sauce


8 ounces (fl) Soured cream or mayonnaise or greek 1 tablespoon Capers, chopped
4 smalls Gherkins, chopped
1 tablespoon Parsley, chopped
1 Clove garlic, crushed


Simply mix all the above ingredients together. The quantities given above produce a mild flavoured sauce which is a wonderful accompaniment to smoked salmon. Everything should really be added 'to taste' - adding more if a stronger flavour is required.
Notes: The choice of ingredients on the first line - simply pick your favourite. I find they all produce similar results - most of the flavours come from the added ingredients. Mayonnaise probably gives a stronger flavoured sauce. An ordinary low fat youhurt may be used to make a reduced calorie version. If soured cream is not available, a good alternative is produced using double cream. Add a few dashes of lemon juice (about 1-2tsp) and leave to stand for 10 minutes or so. Stir in the juice, and the cream will rapidly thicken.
