  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 green onion chopped finely
  • 3 Tablespoons dill relish
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon granulated white sugar


  • Combine in a bowl. Serve immediately or chill.


  • Because this sauce is mayonnaise based, it must be kept refrigerated.
  • Use fresh lemon juice, it is so much more flavorful and tangy compared to bottled.
  • I used a full fat mayo as it's much richer, but you can use a low fat variety if you prefer.
