    I tried this for supper last night. I did not have cornichons, so I used pickle relish and only 1 T of capers (because even though I love them, they are strong...try using a handful in your potato salad...yum!). Anyway, we loved this tartar sauce!!
    portmossy; Cornichons are small whole pickles. Look for them with the other pickles. 
    This is the only tartar sauce I've used for the last few years. Very good and simple to make.
    Have not made this yet. What is cornichons? Have not herd the word before. The sauce looks & sounds good.
    Aimee, you do need to refridgerate the capers. And, this is a very good recipe!

    Never bother with store-bought again. This recipe is easy, quick, and really delicious! Thanks, Tyler, for another tasty recipe.
    easy to make and very enjoyable, the pickles were the best part, it gave the sauce a somewhat sour taste which contrasted very nicely with the fish and potatoes.
