Tartar Sauce

So many store-bought tartar sauces have an odd flavor or taste downright nasty. I read a few of the tartar sauce labels to get an idea of the basic ingredients and tweeked them until I found something I liked. Note: Capers add a lot to the overall flavor.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 10 - 12

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook Time: no cooking required  


1 3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 medium dill pickle, chopped fine (or use sweet pickle if you prefer)
2 Tablespoons drained capers, chopped fine
3 Tablespoons white onion, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped fine
2 Tablespoons deli-style horseradish
1 teaspoon pickle juice (or you can use lemon juice)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
White pepper and/or salt to individual taste


In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Transfer mixture to covered container and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend. Use on seafood as desired.

    Thank you for this recipe!

    One caveat for my taste, though: most certainly didn’t need any more salt than the pickle & juice, capers, and worcestershire sauce provide. It has plenty, but the white pepper (just a dash or two) is exactly what it needs to finish.
