(Last Updated On: May 11, 2022)

This tartar sauce recipe is super easy to make, it also tastes super yummy, and with only five basic ingredients in the recipe, you probably already have them in your kitchen at any given time – mayonnaise, mustard, sweet relish, onions, and parsley flakes.

I’m not a tartar sauce person, and I don’t care for the taste of any tartar sauce in grocery stores or restaurants, but I do have to say that I love this tartar sauce recipe. I have made this recipe for over 49 years now, and my husband loves it and so does my sweet little granddaughter. It’s lip-smacking good!

The first step is to dice up the onion. Dice the onion into small pieces. Note: Buy a small onion because you will probably use just half of it since this recipe calls for only 1/4 of a cup of diced onions. If you like lots of onions as I do, you can certainly add the whole onion because the onions in this tartar sauce recipe do taste fantastic.
