Yeah, that looks good. I'm always in search of a new sauce for my fish wraps and tacos. Currently I use mayo, lemon juice, onions and capers.

I'd use it for a salad dressing, as it sounds very similar to what my husband calls my super secret sauce (not terribly secret). It would make an interesting cole slaw or potato salad.
