I was astounded that not one recipe for tartar sauce on 'zaar actually contained cream of tartar. This is a basic version; add anything you like in your tartar sauce to the base, such as lemon juice, capers, or dill. Tartar sauce is great with just about any fried fish dish.
- Mix mayonnaise and pickle in small bowl.
- Add cream of tartar.
- Add sugar to taste.
- Cover and refrigerate until served; keeps well in fridge.
- Note: This tartar sauce changes color when allowed to sit or exposed to air; it is still safe to eat until it begins to turn rancid.
