Mississippi Comeback Sauce!
“Mississippi Comeback Sauce” is a zesty dipping sauce that is great with fried foods, with seafood, on sandwiches or even as a salad dressing. I paired it here with Fried Green Tomatoes! It would also be great with Fried Squash, Fried Okra, or even for dipping your Fried Dill Pickles in! It’s also great for dipping your chicken fingers or shrimp in or think of it as your own ‘special sauce’ for your burgers or sandwiches!
This sauce originated at a Greek restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi called The Rotisserie. I think it was their house dressing. It became so popular other restaurants in the city started making their own version of it. It’s easy to whip up and you can keep it refrigerated for using for several days. Here is what you will need:
2 Tbs. grated onion
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce (I actually used a sriracha ketchup made by the Red Gold company)
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of cayenne or to your taste
dash of hot sauce to taste (I used Tabasco sauce)
1 Tbs. lemon juice
Grate the onion as fine as possible or process it in a food processor. I grate it with my finest grater and it is just onion juice when I am finished so you don’t hunks of it in the sauce. Place the onion and all of the other ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk it until it’s smooth. Taste it for your own taste preference. You can spice it up or down to your liking. You know I like spicy so I used both a little cayenne and some hot sauce, but you could make it milder.
Pour it up in a mason jar and chill in the fridge until you are ready to use it!
This sauce is so good and really enhances whatever you use it on! It’s really similar to a remoulade sauce, but this is smoother and has a little more spice!
