I eat a lot of fish and I love tartar sauce so I was shocked when I first started Weight Watchers to find out how many points shop brought tartar sauce was.
I'd have a good 2 heaped tablespoons of sauce on the side of my plate but that would add an extra 4 or so Smart Points on to my meal!
Four points that I would much rather use for something else.
Thankfully, this zero point tartar sauce is really quick and easy to make.
Chop up cornichons, capers and fresh dill (optional) and mix with a pinch of salt into some lighter than light mayonnaise and there you have it.
I always use Hellmann's Lighter than Light Mayonnaise for this recipe as it is 0 Smart Points per tablespoon (or 1 Smart Point for 2 tablespoons).
You could also use Kraft Fat Free Mayonnaise for the same Smart Point values. Like the Hellmanns Lighter than Light Mayonnaise, it works out at 0 Smart Points per tablespoon or 1 Smart Point for 2 tablespoons.
Obviously, you could use a light mayonnaise but remember to check out the Smart Point values first as they will differ.
