Homemade Tartar Sauce (+ Salmon Sliders)

A few weeks after trying these Easy Salmon Patties for the first time, I made them again; this time, with homemade tartar sauce, and served inside a buttered & toasted Hawaiian roll, as a slider.  They were so good!!  I put my husband in charge of buttering & toasting the buns (as I was cooking the patties) and he used quite a bit of butter- lol- these were so good though!!  I really enjoyed the tartar sauce, too; I haven't made homemade tartar sauce in years, or maybe ever, but I'm going to change that.  
Homemade Tartar Sauce
adapted from Simple Recipes
Recipe easily cut in half

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
1 teaspoon capers, chopped
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons chopped shallots or mild onion
2 Tbsp chopped scallions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
6 drops Tabasco sauce or more to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

1.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or seal-able container; cover and chill until using.
(To make salmon sliders, prepare Easy Salmon Patties.  Take a 12-pack of Hawaiian rolls, cut in half, and spread with a bit of softened butter.  Grill the cut, buttered sides for a few minutes on a hot griddle; set on a plate.  At the table, top rolls with salmon patties and tartar sauce and enjoy.)

Ooh, I love homemade tartar sauce. Yours is similar to mine--I use Worcestershire rather than Tabasco, and vinegar rather than lemon juice. Slurp!

I'd love to try W sauce in it!
