Tartar Sauce

I like to avoid all the additives, thickeners and chemicals commonly found in grocery store tartar sauce so I generally make my own. Always start with a good quality mayonnaise and then add small amounts of the other ingredients until it tastes good. When we are in parts of the country with Trader Joes, their mayonnaise is my preferred starting ingredient. Dukes brand mayonnaise made and distributed throughout the South East is also a favorite.


 minced dill pickles
 pickle juice
 minced onion
 lemon juice
 capers (optional)


Mix the ingredients together in amounts and proportions that tastes good to you. Any left over tartar sauce can be stored in the refrigerator and lasts as long as mayonnaise which makes this a good recipe to make at home to take on trips.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
