How to Make Tartar Sauce

Thankfully, it uses ingredients that I normally have on hand – mayonnaise or yogurt, relish, mustard, lemon juice and salt and pepper. You simply stir these ingredients together! It couldn’t get much easier!

I like to make it a bit in advance of serving and store in the refrigerator. It allows the tartar sauce to thicken as it chills as well as allowing the flavors to develop more fully. However, my son prefers it freshly made so I usually make it right before serving when he’s involved. Ha!

Here’s my recipe for Tartar Sauce. I think you’ll love it.
