Companies as large as Red Lobster tend to be very tight-lipped when it comes to “trade secrets.” This recipe comes pretty darn close to replicating the real thing, according to reviews. It starts with a base of Miracle Whip, instead of mayo. This creates a sweeter flavor profile, which is right on track with the taste of Red Lobster’s famous tartar sauce.
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped sweet white onion
- 3 teaspoons minced carrot
- 1/3 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
- 2/3 cups sour cream
- 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Step 1: In a medium bowl, combine 3 tablespoons finely chopped sweet white onion, 3 teaspoons minced carrot, 1/3 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing, 2/3 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Step 2: Whisk well to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow flavors to meld. Makes 1 cup.
