Truly Amazing Tuna Mayonnaise

“I cannot recall ever using the words *amazing* or *fabulous* in a recipe title, but I had to make an exception for this wonderful recipe from the *Dinner Party* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. This is so versatile & you are almost certain to view tartar sauce as ordinary by comparison & obsolete in most cases. Pls see notes following prep for recipe comments & a variety of serving suggestions. *Enjoy*”
