Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Tartar Sauce

A fishy sauce that makes the meal

This creamy condiment can add a satisfying and tangy twist to fried seafood. Tartar sauces usually require mayonnaise spiked with any one or a few of the following ingredients: chopped cucumber, relish, vinegar, lemon juice, or mustard. Historically, similar sauce recipes date back to the Middle Ages in Europe. Some cooks may choose to serve tartar sauce with French fries or even as a salad dressing. More complex and fancier tartar sauce recipes call for capers, horseradish, or red wine vinegar. Can you think of another optional ingredient to make a unique tartar sauce?
