I use Miracle Whip and relish. Just mix the two and your set. Or you can use mayonaise and relish. How much relish you put in depends on you, but I don't overdo the relish. Hope this helps.

I do the same as LULUbobo but I add a boiled egg.

I use Hellman's mayonnaise. onion, lemon juice, parsley and capers. To 2 cups mayo, add 1 tablespoon grated onion, 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, 2 tablespoons dried parsley and 1 tablespoon finely minced capers. Tastes great. You can also just use dill pickle relish instead of capers.

If I want just a quicky tartar sauce, I'll mix Kraft Mayo, some garlic powder, and sweet relish. Like LULUbobo says, not much relish. It works in a pinch. If I were going to make for others, I might do the other recipes, but once in a while I get a craving that just has to be filled Just That Moment! :)

I used to work at Captain D's restaurant, and although we had pre-packaged tartar sauce to put with carry-outs, we made a couple gallons of our own each day for use in the restaurant or to send in portion cups with family packs. The mixture was simple:

1 gallon mayonnaise (not salad dressing)

1 pound (I believe) of fine diced onions

1 pound (I believe) of fine diced dill pickles

The onions and pickles came in pouches that weren't marked with weights, but I think they were a pound. They were fairly "juicy," and we didn't drain. This is what went in the pumps in the dining room. I greatly preferred this to the little packets, which I found too sweet. For fish sandwiches, we would add some dry dill weed to the store-made sauce.

At home, I make:


1 cup of mayonnaise

a couple tablespoons of diced onion

a couple tablespoons of fine diced dill pickles.

I often add a sprinkle of dill weed, too, cause I like mine extra dilly. I will use dill relish if I have it, but never sweet... I don't like sweet tartar sauce.

Here's another tip from the Cap'n:

Cocktail Sauce

1 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon prepared horseradish (from the jar)

This makes a tasty, quick cocktail sauce. The horseradish can be adjusted for taste.

I just mix mayo and relish-sweet or dill work equally well.
