This the tartar sauce my mom made growing up, no sweet relish here! The pickle juice replaces lemon juice for acidity and tang. So simple and worth the little bit of time. (I don't like sweet pickles in my potato salad either!)

Right on, SKANDREWS! The tartar sauce of my youth, in WA state, was NEVER a sweet-pickle sauce- it was always dilly. This is almost exactly the same recipe I use- will try it your way soon! Thanks so much for sticking up for the "savory" side! :o)

I mostly followed this, but used dill relish (lazy!) and a touch of regular relish. Added the dill juice plus lots of pepper and some seasoning salt. I was trying really hard not to eat it as chip dip! Very, very good!

I love this sauce! It's just perfect the way is. I grew up in Delaware, and the tartar was always tangy with dill pickle in it. Thanks for bringing back the past :)
