Recipe Notes

  • You can add in other ingredients to make it your own like lemon juice, capers, minced jalapeno or chopped green onions.
  • If you like your tartar sauce sweeter, use sweet pickle relish instead of dill.
  • If you have time to make the tartar sauce recipe ahead of time, the flavors can meld together. But it's still good right away, too!
  • Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  2. Put the tartar sauce into the refrigerator until ready to serve. The flavors will meld together as it sits.
