Comeback Sauce of Mississippi

Hi, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from blogging. I will blog as circumstances allow. Have you ever been to Jackson, Mississippi? If you have, you will have eaten the "Queen Mother of Condiments", the flavorful "Comeback Sauce". It got it's name because once you taste it; you'll "comeback" for more. It is that good and you can eat it on most anything except cereal. It is a dip for onion rings, seafood, veggies and a dressing for Po'Boy sandwiches, burgers and as a salad dressing. What could be more versatile? It is a bit like thousand island dressing only much better. There are many recipes for this but the common denominator is the amount of mayonnaise, chili sauce and ketchup. The other ingredients vary from recipe to recipe. The original sauce was credited to The Rotisserie, a Greek restaurant that was located in Jackson, Mississippi.

Comeback Sauce of Mississippi
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons minced onions
2 cloves garlic -- minced
juice of 1 lemon
Add all ingredients except the oil, garlic and onions to a blender. Cover and blend. Add oil slowing as you blend those ingredients. After you add the oil, stir in the onions and garlic. Refrigerate overnight before using. Great with seafood, on sandwiches, or as a dressing or dip.
Makes about 2 cups, or a very full pint jar.
Till next time.....
