Homemade Tartar Sauce

So, I can't find tartar sauce at the store to save my life.  I suppose I could have asked somebody.....   Then it occurred to me,  I probably have all the ingredients at home to make it myself!  AND I did!  I decided to look at a few recipes and then create my own.   I'll tell you right now that there have been no food poisoning issues. :):)  In fact it's delicious!  Since it's my own recipe I'm going to name it...

Tartar Sauce Merrill
(because I created it - Merrill is my last name lol )

1 c light mayo
2 T sweet relish
2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 chopped onion (I used dried)
1/2 T chives
salt & pepper to taste

mix it altogether and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  It's better after 3 hours.
will last in refrigerator for 3 days so don't make a ton. :)

Vlasic relish .55/1 printable (will round to $1 at Smith's making it .39!)
Kraft Mayo $1/2 printable

I have to say that sometimes in a pinch, I just use Miracle Whip, cut up some pickles, add a little pickle juice into my miracle whip, stir it up til creamy, and serve that instead. My kids and husband love it and its quite tasty! I'll keep this recipe on file as well. Thank you! :)
