First thankas for the link.
2nd, the original MD's tartar sauce has a very special flavour which comes mainly from the MD 's gherkins marinade. - The original sauce ALSO smells like it tastes. They use a very good vinegar recipe for them.
Onions are not in it.
We'll never know the truth.

Hello Geeciii...You are very welcome dear and WOW! Gherkins Marinade?? Have you tried to make it with that yet? I tried the recipe since last I posted and I say very unhappily.. it doesn't taste like Mickey D's..it tastes good but not that Mc'D's flavor I'm craving! I didn't use onions in either of my trysts..I thought maybe that was why it came out wrong..but do you know the "very good vinegar recipe" they use? If not..I agree..we may never know the truth! Boo Hoo!!
