    twissis's Note:

    I cannot recall ever using the words *amazing* or *fabulous* in a recipe title, but I had to make an exception for this wonderful recipe from the *Dinner Party* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. This is so versatile & you are almost certain to view tartar sauce as ordinary by comparison & obsolete in most cases. Pls see notes following prep for recipe comments & a variety of serving suggestions. *Enjoy*

      This was very light compared with using regular mayo. I did need to add salt, pepper, and about 1/4 tsp sugar, but this was a personal preference to taste. I made it in a food processor, and it was very easy to make. I enjoyed it with a tuna salad made with pasta, celery, and onions. Then I poured this sauce over top like a dressing. It was so exquisite in taste that our beta 'mobster' fish "Pinky Bleu Eyes" even wanted some. lol. Will definitely be making this one again. Thanks Twissis for a winner of a sauce! -Bird-

      Personally, I don't like mayonnaise, but I helped a chef that I interned with make these:D We used vinegar together with the lemon juice, and seasoned it with some salt and a lot of pepper. We didn't use a blender but instead took turns whisking in the oil. We didn't use capers, garlic or cream either - it was just pure tuna. The mayonnaise was used to top smoked turkey as an Amuse-Bouche. Thanks:)
