Made both sauces but on different days...I felt the cocktail sauce had a very tomato taste along with it being very sour from the I added a touch of sugar and it was perfect...I cut both recipes in half...I made the tartar sauce to go with my tuna nuggets that I made...I didn't have sweet pickles so I just used relish...both of these will be made again...made for "First Time" tag game...
