Tartar sauce is something relatively new to my kitchen. I've always liked to eat it with fries when I'm out and about. However, I had put off making it myself as it has a mayonnaise base. I remembered when I made the mayonnaise by beating by hand and I was lazy. I now use an electric mixer and it is child's play, so simple that I was inspired to give it another try and since then I have been experimenting with mayonnaise based sauces and my current favorite is this tartar sauce.
