Rémoulade is a classic French mayonnaise sauce that is typically made with mustard, capers, gherkins, fresh herbs, and anchovies. Our version uses mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, and Dijon mustard and gets its Cajun flair from the addition of Creole seasoning, which adds lots of flavor to any dish. It features paprika, cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder, black pepper, and/or dried oregano, thyme, and parsley, and is endlessly riffable with whatever you have in your pantry. You can substitute hot pepper sauce, if you like. The creamy rémoulade goes super-well with these pan-fried green tomatoes that cook in just 4 minutes. You can have this delicious, gorgeous-looking appetizer ready in under 20 minutes.
