Comeback for more sauce! Comeback Sauce

Full to the very top -- a pint jar of Comeback Sauce.

     Who wouldn’t be attracted by a name like Comeback Sauce? When I saw both the name and a pint jar full of the stuff on Pinterest, I just couldn’t resist checking it out. Discovered that the recipe originates in the South, One source refers to Comeback Sauce as the “queen mother of all Mississippi condiments.” Another source calls it a cross between a rémoulade sauce and Thousand Island salad dressing; the ingredients seem to be fairly standard with slight variations. The original recipe is credited to The Rotisserie, a Greek restaurant that was located in Jackson, Mississipi.
    A very versatile condiment; here are just a few of the uses I found listed on several internet sites: burger condiment, sandwich spread, salad dressing, veggie dip, seafood sauce, sauce for onion rings or fried green tomatoes. Others use it in place of plain mayo . . . like in deviled eggs. I used it over Quinoa Patties.
Comeback Sauce was really good over Quinoa Patties.
     Yes, it is good and I will keep it on hand in the fridge so we can comeback to it whenever we need a dipping sauce, salad dressing or flavor boost.

Comeback Sauce (The recipe is pretty standard but Syrup & Biscuits blog is where I first saw it and I couldn’t resist using that blogger's instructions for assembling – don't they just sound Sooooo Southern?)
1 cup mayonnaise
The sauce is easy to mix up by hand.
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chili sauce*  
1 heaping teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Tabasco®)
1/4 cup olive oil
Juice of one lemon (2 to 3 tablespoons)

1.     Mix all ingredients well.
2.     Store in refrigerator overnight. Sauce needs to sit to let the flavors meld.

*To make a homemade chili sauce, combine 1 c. tomato sauce, ¼  c. brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. vinegar, ¼  tsp. cinnamon, dash of ground cloves & dash of allspice (this can also be located in the Substitution chart under the MIXES & MORE tab at the top of the page – scroll down the page to locate the chart).
