This is very good served with home grown sliced tomatoes or cucumbers.  Capers have a distinctive aromatic flavor and are very good in mayo and cream sauces.  My Dad used to make a caper heavy cream sauce for baked fish that was good, too.  Induction friendly.


1/3 c. mayonnaise

1 ½  tsp.  drained, mashed capers

1 T. very finely minced onion


Drain capers and mash on a cutting board using the back of a spoon.  Mush them up really well.  You don’t want to bite into a chunk of caper as they have a very intense flavor.  Transfer to small bowl and add mayo and minced onion.  Stir well.  Serve on sliced fresh tomatoes or cucumbers (or both).
