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
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. In a small bowl combine yogurt and mayonnaise.
  2. 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….:)
