What is Tartar Sauce?
Tartar sauce is a velvety dressing that’s typically served with fried foods (or seafood if not vegan).
Its specific origin is uncertain, however it may have originated in France at some point after the development of mayo in the mid-1700s. By the 1920s, Hellman’s (yep, the mayo business) started offering its variation of the dressing. It’s now enjoyed in numerous areas of the world, with some utilizing the spelling tartare instead of tartar sauce.
