Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Most people associate cucumbers with fresh salads, vinaigrettes, and dill dip, but I like to pair it with something savory in the form of tzatziki sauce. Traditionally served as a Greek condiment with lamb, tzatiki sauce is a great pairing for whatever protein is on your plate and is the perfect summertime sauce because it's refreshing and light.

Tartar Sauce Recipe

At New York City's Pearl Oyster Bar, the must-get dish - aside from the lobster roll, of course - is the fried oysters appetizer. And apart from the superior fry, the key to the dish's success is the tartar sauce. Tangy, a touch of citrus, and crunch from the diced cornichons: It's fantastic. This my best attempt to recreate it.


½ cup mayonnaise
Juice of ½ a small lemon
6-8 cornichons, finely diced
1 teaspoon dried dill
Salt, to taste


Combine all of the ingredients together in a small bowl, adjusting seasoning as desired.
