Thanks to blogger Jackie Gavin at  I discovered this great sauce on Pinterest.  

It's become a "must keep on hand" sauce in our house ever since.

Use it on burgers, sandwiches, as a salad dressing or dip for veggies and chips.  She notes it originated in Mississippi where it's very popular. 

Like many recipes, I tweaked it the first time I made it as I didn't have chili sauce, so instead used salsa, but it's still delightfully tangy.  It's now one of my "secret sauces" as I've even brushed it on fish and chicken, too!

Comeback Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce, or other hot sauce

  1. that would probably be good on the impossible cheeseburger pie!!

  2. Yes, it's similar to your "secret sauce" with added goodies!

  3. Oh yum! This would be great with my fried pickles!!!

    1. Yes! I've got a list of recipes I want to try and fried pickles is on the list. Let me know how you like the sauce.

    2. How long does this last in the fridge? I just love your blog!

    3. As long as ketchup or mayo in a jar, so at least 4 weeks, but don't worry, I bet you use it up before then! With just the two of us, I have to make it once a month, as we put it on everything, LOL.
