Servings: 2
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins


  • 1 tbs mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs low fat plain yogurt - preferably Greek or thick
  • 1 tbs capers – drained and chopped
  • 1 tbs gherkins – drained and chopped
  • a few drops of the gherkin or caper vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Rinse capers to remove excess salt.
  • Finely chop the capers and gherkins.
  • Mix all the ingredients, and adjust to taste.


  • Sauce will keep for 3 days in the fridge.
  • Use any leftover sauce as a dressing for some salad leaves, or on a simple grated carrot and sliced cabbage slaw.
  • This sauce is also perfect in a slightly sinful fish-finger wrap or sandwich. Real comfort food!
  • Add diced small pickled onions for an extra flavour.
  • If the sauce is too thin, try straining the yogurt – the thicker the yogurt, the thicker and creamier the sauce will be.
