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.
