Creamy Peperoncini and Caper Relish

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….
  1. In a medium bowl mix the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon zest and juice.  Whisk to combine. 
  2. 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


Yields approximately 3/4 cup
