Greek Tartar Dip

I like to oven bake Calamari, it gives it a much lighter taste than frying. But Calamari needs to have  a dip to enjoy the taste.  Some prefer just to add lemon juice which I also enjoy but I wanted something different, so I  made this tasty Tartar dip.  I have not added any onions or garlic because the taste of the dip just disappears with the intensity of the garlic and added onion.  🙂  Simple to make and great to eat!!! 🙂


1 cup Mayonaisse

1 cup Greek Yogurt

1 large Pickle or 6 small chopped 

1/2 tablespoon of Capers finely chopped

1/2 lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard





In a small bowl combine yogurt and mayonnaise.


Add in all the ingredients and whisk until nicely combined.  If you want the dip to have  a much tangier taste add some extra mustard or lemon.  You can use this dip with any fish dish,  or if you love fish sandwiches use it as a great spread….:)

Kali Orexii!!!  🙂
