Smart way to make Zips Tartar Sauce

  • Chop Pickles
    Take some pickles and chop them randomly. Pickles will add some taste and flavor to your sauce. I like some sweet taste in sauce, so I will use some sweet pickles. Based on your taste, you may use ordinary pickles. Cut the Pickles into the smallest pieces if you don’t have a food processor or blender.  You can see my chapped pickles in the image.Chop-Pickles
  • Chop Dill:
    Now cut Dill into more small pieces. You have to make it almost like a powder. In this case, a chopping board will help you a lot. Look at the image to get an idea of how small the dill pieces are. Chop-Dill
  • Slice Half Of A Mid-Size Onion
    Take half of a mid-size white onion and chop them into small pieces. This also needs to be powder-like. That means as small as possible. You can also use onion powder instead of organic onion.Onion-Cutting
  • Take All Ingredients Into A Bowl
    All our items are ready to mix in a bowl. Take a cup of Mayonnaise that you like. I like egg Mayonnaise, so I will take that. Add the juice of a half lemon, these chapped onions, pepper, sugar, dill, and the chapped pickles.Put-Ingrediants-Into-Bowl

You can preserve this zips tartar sauce for around 7 days at a lower temperature. But how long your sauce will last depends on the ingredients you use in it. If your zips sauce is made with fresh ingredients, the flavors will be more intense, but you can’t preserve it for a long time.

But if you use processed ingredients, the taste of tartar sauce will last for a longer period. So, it’s up to you how long you want the sauce to stay in your fridge before using it.

From my personal experience, I can say that foods usually rot of their ingredients. Easy to rot ingredients rot the food also. In that sense, there is a way to preserve our zips tartar sauce for a few days extra.
