If the individual who posted the picture for this recipe had followed the directions, the sauce would have more of an orange color that comes from the buttery round crackers. It is never white like the picture. Also, the recipe originally called for jalapeno peppers (fresh, not pickled). I have since found that serrano peppers work much better. I do not seed them, just toss them in the blender. Depending on how much heat you want, I usually use about 3 small ones. When I could not locate my original recipe, I turned to all recipes since I knew I had posted it here. After measuring out all ingredients as listed, I realized something was WRONG. The quantity just did not look right. Eventually, I found the original. It called for 1 PINT, not 1 CUP of mayo. We normally make it with 1 cup of mayo and 1 cup of salad dressing. I am sorry for the mistake. I am glad those who tried it were not disappointed, but try it again using the additional mayo. It makes it to further and will have a smoother texture. Otherwise, for those of you who prefer it the other way, go for it ! Thanks for trying it!

Original review 2/19/06: This is it! This is the tartar sauce I have been looking for FOREVER! Ever since I was pregnant with my 1st child, and we went to Landry Seafood in Galveston, TX...I ate and ate this stuff! Thank you, thank you! I finally had all the ingredients...the green olives are the secret ingredient. Thanks so much for the post!

People need to try this. Don't let the ingredients fool you. This is great tartar sauce. I was learey at first due to olives and crackers in a tartar sauce, but it is great. Be brave and at least try it once. I have been using this for about 1 1/2 yrs and just suprised more people haven't tried it.
