Tartar sauce is a classic dipping sauce for fish, It is also great for dipping French fries. Tartar Sauce, or sauce tartare as it was originally called in France, has been around a long time. The sauce is thought to be named after the Tartars, Mongolian conquerers who roamed what is now Russia and its neighbors in the 5th century.

This recipe was shared with me by Leo Porter, Manager of the Horseshoe Ranch in Fort Kalamath, Oregon.
