Low FODMAP Tartar Sauce (Dairy-Free, Paleo, Whole30)

  • Author: Gail
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


So simple to make and containing only five ingredients (plus salt and pepper), after making this homemade low FODMAP tartar sauce, you'll wonder why you ever bothered to use the store-bought stuff. Low FODMAP, dairy-free, Paleo and Whole30 compliant.


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free mayo
  • 1 tablespoon jarred capers, drained, rinsed, and minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh dill, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mayo, capers, garlic-infused olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper.
  2. Taste tartar sauce and adjust seasonings and ingredients as needed.
  3. Serve with your favorite seafood recipes, such as my low FODMAP Air Fryer Fish and Chips, crab cakes, fish sandwiches, fish sticks, etc.
  4. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Stir before re-serving.


  • Makes a bit more than ¼ cup, which is about two 2-tablespoon servings. If you think you’ll need more than that, use the recipe card tools above to double or triple the recipe. When I make this for two people for fish and chips, we typically have about half of it leftover; therefore, I kept the quantities of ingredients on this recipe small. 
  • Quantities of salt and pepper are suggestions. I am a big fan of salt in my recipes; however, if you aren’t a salt fan, use less than what’s suggested, taste, and work your way up.
