Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce
Wanting to prepare a lovely fish dinner for your family only to find that you are out of tartar sauce can be quite disappointing. Here is an extremely basic and easy way to make your own tartar sauce at home. For those of you who like a little “flair” to your sauce, I have also provided a list of additional ingredient options.
You will need:
1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 Tbsp. dill relish (sweet relish if you prefer)
Mix together and enjoy! It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Possible “add in” ingredients:
Salt & Pepper to taste
Lemon pepper seasoning
Dash of lemon juice
Finely chopped onions
Finely chopped celery
Experiment and have fun. You may find that you enjoy the taste of homemade tartar sauce better than store bought.
Another benefit to making your own is that you can choose which mayo to use. Olive oil based, low or non fat, each mayo gives your sauce a different flavor.
Traditional tartar uses dill relish, while you may prefer sweet.
The kitchen is your playground! Who knows, your newly found love for making tartar sauce could turn into wonderful homemade gift ideas; or you could be the talk of potluck socials!
