Serves 4 (serving size: about 4 tsp.)

A rémoulade is a popular French condiment that shows up in lots of culinary traditions today. We like it with fried green tomatoes or fish cakes, but don't overlook the aioli- or mayonnaise-based spread for beef and pork dinners. Most rémoulades are chunky, with bits of garlic, onion, or capers tucked into a creamy base. In this one, we're adding a bit of tang to canola mayo with Dijon mustard and tart whole-grain mustard. You can mix this spread up just before serving dinner, or for a better flavor, give it time to rest and chill.


  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon drained, rinsed, and chopped brined capers
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon tarragon vinegar
  • Dash of black pepper
  • Dash of hot sauce
