"My husband IS a tartar sauce guy, and he loved this - packed with flavor! It's only serves 4 instead of 12 because it is SO GOOD! Be sure to chop the pickles finely, and it's better if left in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before serving.

Definitely a keeper!"

"My husband is very fussy about his tartar sauce and he really liked this sauce. It's definitely not enough for 12 servings, maybe 4 small servings."

"Husband like this a lot, and that's a big compliment because he's not really a tartar sauce guy. Definitely like this better than anything in a bottle."
