Tangy Tartar Sauce (Made With Dill Pickles, Not Sweet)

This tartar sauce is made with dill pickles, or dill pickle relish, instead of sweet pickle relish, as is common with many other recipes. The flavor is bright and fresh, without being overly sweet. I make it with Best Foods/Hellmans light mayo, so it is not too heavy of a condiment, and the kids can have a good portion without turning their healthy baked fish into an unhealthy meal.

Comfort classic. Tart, tangy, and paired nicely with baked fish sticks. Made for Spring 2014 Pick a Chef.

This was great with fish & chips. I used red onion and some of last year's homemade dill pickles (& juice). No sweet relish for me (ewww! lol) Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2014 Pick a Chef]

Nice tartar sauce. I did add some sweet relish too. This was great to dip fries into. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
