Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce is so worth making instead of using the bottled stuff. Serve this alongside Homemade Crab Cakes, fried fish, fried shrimp and more!
How do you make tartar sauce from scratch?
Simple. Just chop up some red onion, chives (or green onion), capers and dill pickles.
Then mix them all together with your favorite mayonnaise (our favorite is Duke’s), a little pickle juice and some black pepper!
How long does homemade tartar sauce last?
This recipe will last up to a week in the fridge if it even lasts that long before you use it up!
Can you make this recipe vegan?
Yes! You can make this tartar sauce vegan by substituting your favorite vegan mayonnaise! My mom is highly allergic to eggs so she modifies this recipe by using her favorite Grapeseed Oil Veganaise.
