The son-in-law was frying fish. L asked about Tartar Sauce. Nope. We didn't have any. I saw a small pout beginning. OK. How tough can tartar sauce be? Come to find out, not hard at all. And even picky L was happy!
These are the ingredients you need, and I bet you have most of them on hand:
Mayonnaise- a cup or so (You can use light or nonfat.)
Pickle Relish- (sweet) a couple of tablespoons
Onions- minced a couple of tablespoons
Lemon Juice- a couple of tablespoons
Mix it all together. That's it. Tastes just like what you buy.
A couple of things I've learned:
1. Dill pickle relish doesn't taste as good. (The Mr. bought dill by mistake, and I was trying to use it up. Ugh!)
2. The Mr. wanted hot tartar sauce. I added hot sauce, but I never could get it to a hotness that made a difference. Maybe jalapenos or jalapeno seeds? Just guessing! I haven't tried it yet.
I'll probably never buy tartar sauce again.
