Tartar Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jacqueline in KY

My Mother got this recipe from a restaurant in town that has been closed now for years. I make it each year when our church has a fish fry; that is, if I get to go, the last two I have missed. I normally make about a quart of it and, with about 25 people, there is never a drop left. If there should be some left someone always asks me for the leftovers.

I made a reduced amount of your tarter sauce to serve with fish sandwiches. The addition of the hot sauce jazzed up the sandwich and I enjoyed the green peepers instead of the normal pickles in most tarter sauces. I did use mayo to replace the miracle whip so added a bit of seasoned salt. Thanks Jac!
