    Probably great as per recipe but I added capers & chives finely chopped - delicious, only drawback far too much, next time will half the recipe.  -  03 Oct 2013


    Quick and easy - just as the submitter states! It's also very good and a life saver when you realize you're out of tartar sauce! It's also much better so I don't think I'll be getting the store bought stuff anymore. I cut the recipe in half and used Hellman's light mayo combined with a bit of light sour cream to make it a little creamier along with some finely chopped green onion as it's very mild. All it needed was a bit of dill to punch it up. It was perfect over beer battered fish filet sandwiches!  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this tartar sauce. I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and added a little dill. I also used green onion instead of regular white onion. Yummy Yummy!!!!!  -  07 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
