Creamy Peperoncini and Caper Relish recipe – It seems like every good burger experience involves some kind of a special sauce. I really love pickles on my burgers…that tangy, briny flavor goes so well with a juicy, rich burger. Right? I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it. This creamy ‘relish’ is very tangy but once you pair it with the burger I think it really works. And especially when paired with the Habanero Spiked Ketchup I posted earlier. Now that’s the combo….
In a medium bowl mix the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon zest and juice. Whisk to combine.
Fold in the remaining ingredients. Taste and then season with salt and pepper. I use a generous amount of pepper but only a little salt because the capers are salty.
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon whole grain mustard
- 1/3 cup diced Peperoncinis
- ¼ cup diced pickles or cornichons
- ½ Tablespoon capers
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest and 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Sea salt (dash) and generous amount of fresh ground pepper
