Low Fat Tarter Sauce

Oven “Fried” Fish. My husband loves tarter sauce, but obviously, using mayo was not an option at this point, so I had to come up with a “low” fat alternative for him. I did some research on the numbers and based on a general average of fat for the ingredients I used, this tarter sauce is about 2.81 grams for the total amount made (in comparison to the average store bought tart sauces in the same batch amount which is about 29.5 grams of fat). You obviously would not eat an entire 1/4 of cup in one sitting, but this gives you a general comparison of the difference in fat content. It’s not exactly like tarter sauce, but it does taste like it and has the nice crunch from the pickle. Also, the amount of fat will change based on the ingredients you use (low fat in comparison to fat free or just cultured).


  1. 1/4 cup plain low fat (of fat free) yogurt *depending on the yogurt you use, the 2.81 grams of fat will change.*

  2. 1/4 of a small onion (chopped)

  3. 1 small dill pickle (chopped)

  4. 1 tsp. of pickle juice

  5. 1 tbs. garlic powder

  6. 1tbs onion powder

  7. 1 tsp. sour cream of your choice *depending on the sour cream you use, the 2.81 grams of fat will change.*
