    This was great tartar sauce! I was a little afraid my husband wouldn’t like it, but, it was a success!

    Fantastic!!!! I did tweak a little. I did not have dried minced onions, so I substituted with fresh onions. My husband is more of a red sauce person and he loved this sauce. Even went back for more.

    This was definitely a good baseline recipe to start with! I added more dill, fresh onions, and ground mustard! With the added ingredients it was a huge hit!

    This is seriously the best and my favourite Tartar sauce. I was never a fan of Tartar until I tried this. It goes very well with crouton crusted salmon.
