  2. Serve.

End Results

The one thing that I love about this recipe is that it’s super simple to make and very adaptable in quantity. There aren’t any exact measurements due to the fact that it is about each person’s personal taste. How tangy you want your tartar sauce to taste, how much relish you want it to have, how much sauce you want to make. If you remember the ratio of 2 (mayo): 1 (yellow mustard): 1 (sweet relish), you can recreate this recipe over and over again without fail.
