Define "large"

Also if it were me, I'd just make it.
Mayo is cheap. Relish is cheap. Mustard is cheap. Worchestershire isn't that cheap but you don't need that much of it. Lemons are damn expensive but you also don't need that much.

If you insist on buying it, I'm sure Wholesale club has 5 gallon buckets.

I think many grocery stores have it. Walmart.ca has Kraft and Heinz in 350mL squeeze bottles if that's of any interest.

I just make it. All I use is Miracle Whip (I hate mayo), green relish (homemade preferably) or diced pickle and some malt or cider vinegar. Tastes great.

I am pretty sure the Costco business centre also sell the 5L jugs that restaurants use so if you want restaurant flavour and quality, check there (I never use tartar sauce and never really looked but you can check out my Costco business thread and see if I might have captured it in one of my many photos).

Chef Depot - probably has industrial sized sauces. I know they have other sauces too like mayo, sweet and sour, bbq sauce, tomato sauce etc.

mayo, hot dog relish, dash of citric acid powder (because lemon juice makes it runny IMO)

fancy: add chopped capers

I like the Kraft stuff better than Heinz but it is hard to find...maybe when the McDonald's/Kraft version comes out I will be in luck again.

I'm going to try this! Where do you get citric acid powder? With spices? Or Bulk Barn?

I make Tartar Sauce probably once a week, sometimes vary it by doing the Red Lobster copycat version.

I've seen it at Bulk Barn...they have containers of it in the same area where they keep the food colouring and flavourings.

both, or Amazon, most cake shops, etc. I actually bought it first and foremost to address my runny tartar sauce problem ;)

Minced onion...you have to try sweet pickled minced onion as a base for sauces and dressings. Then you would not have to add the sugar and the onion is zippier.

I boil a 1 cup canning jar and lid, drain
Finely mince a medium yellow onion and put it in the jar (about 1 cup)
Boil 1/2 cup vinegar (I use cider and white), 1/4 cup sugar and pour over onions
Let sit in fridge 24h

I use this as a base for Rennee's poppyseed dressing knockoff. To go from there:

Whisk together 1-1/2 tsp poppyseed, 1 tsp dry mustard and 1/2 (1/4 cup) of the vinegar from the jar
Whisk in 3/4 cup oil
Add in 1/2 minced onions from the jar

That's not large.
