This homemade vegan tartar sauce is creamy, tangy and so delicious! Whether you serve it with vegan shrimp or as a veggie dip or salad dressing, this easy recipe will become one of your favorites.
What Makes This Recipe So Good
- This recipe is so easy and quick! You’ll only need a handful of ingredients to make this delicious vegan tartar sauce.
- It’s food-allergy friendly! Since this sauce is vegan, it’s already dairy- and egg-free. It’s also naturally gluten-free, and if your vegan mayo is soy-free and nut-free then this vegan tartar sauce can be completely free of the top 8 allergens!
- I recommend making the tartar sauce in advance and letting it sit in the fridge for one to two hours before serving. That gives the flavors time to develop and deepen, for the most perfect sauce. If you’re short on time, though, you can absolutely use it right away!
- If you’re not following a vegan diet, feel free to use regular mayonnaise. You’ll get the same delicious, creamy tartar sauce; it just won’t be vegan.
- Tartar sauce is often served with seafood, but it also works great as a dip for veggies or even as a salad dressing. For a totally vegan “seafood” dinner, pair your sauce with our vegan shrimp.
