Homemade Tarter Sauce
Copyright © 2003, 2006 by Michelle Jones, editor of

I know it may seem like the most disgusting thing you've ever heard of, but what's even better served with tarter sauce (than seafood) is, of all things, French fries! If you haven't tried it yet, please do!

Now, if you like tarter sauce and normally purchase the premade variety at the grocery store just remember these three ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and you can save some money (and extra preservatives) by making it yourself.

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 heaping teaspoonful of pickle relish

Just a bit of lemon juice


Blend ingredients together in a small bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve. 

Serve chilled tarter sauce with fish, shrimp, other seafood, or my favorite, French fries! :o)
