Let me tell you a secret. At any time, I have a jar of sliced jalapeño peppers in my fridge. It is amazing how often it comes in handy. I use the peppers in salads, sandwiches, sauces, and more. Many times in the past I purchased a fresh jalapeño only to have it go bad before I used it. No longer.
Tartar sauce used to cause me a great amount of guilt. I love the flavor with a piece of fish or mixed with tuna in a sandwich. But the mayonnaise . . . so fattening! I came up with this recipe that is full of flavor and low in fat so now I enjoy it without worries. The jarred jalapeños add just the right amount of spice and work beautifully here!
3/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon minced jarred jalapeño
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
Combine all ingredients in small bowl and mix well. Refrigerate several hours before serving to blend flavors. Makes about 16 1-tablespoon servings, 1 point plus and 32 calories each.
