Tartar Sauce (Tartare Sauce has nothing to do with the product cream of tartar. Tartar sauce, or as the French refer to it, sauce tartare, consists of mayonnaise, mustard, chives, chopped gherkins, and tarragon, according to C. Owenâ€™s â€œChoice Cooking,â€�, circa 1889. In French, it is loosely translated as â€˜rough,â€™ as the Tartars were considered rough, violent, and savage.
Chosen for Pick a Chef, I made this to go on my veggie fillets. It was very good. I have never made tartar sauce before so I really don't have one to compare it to. I will be trying anothers recipe in the future and expect that I moght just return to this one. It was very easy!
