Quick & Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce

homemadetartarsauceIn my husband’s spare time, he loves to fish.  Here in Tennessee, there are lots of bass, blue gill, crappie and catfish and my favorite is crappie.  We’ve had some friends come over for a fish fry and one of my close friends started making tartar sauce.  I had no clue that it could be made from things in the fridge that we all tend to keep on hand.
