How to Make Remoulade Sauce

No po'boy sandwich is complete without a dollop or two of creamy remoulade sauce. Remoulade sauce, which features a rich mayonnaise base, is found all over the world but is especially prevalent in a Louisiana creole cuisine. Although remoulade sauce is a condiment meant to enhance flavorful dishes such as fried oysters, shrimp or green tomatoes, it has quite a piquant flavor all on its own. You can make the savory sauce yourself to hold you over until your next visit to New Orleans.
