Comeback Sauce Recipe
When my husbands nephew was here working with us he kept raving about Southern Comeback Sauce and asking if we could find some here in Spokane. We tried to introduce him to fry sauce and were quickly told that it is not the same thing.
He told us that Southern Comeback Sauce is served at fast food restaurants in the south and perfect for dipping chicken fingers, fish sticks, onion rings, potato chips, and really any fried food he can find.
This started a quest to make homemade comeback sauce that wasn't crazy spicy but had enough kick that you kept going back for another taste. This is the recipe we finally landed on and I hope you love it.
We did a sauce taste testing with all of our favorites and it was fun to see which sauce we all blindly picked.
I think this sauce would be epic as a salad dressing or the perfect dipping sauce for vegetables like green bean fries. YUM!
When we made this sauce I thought it would be interesting to read a bit more about it. I learned that it is believed to have been originally created at a Greek restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi.
The sauce quickly became famous and took off across the South. Our nephew said he finds it at most restaurants and people always have it on the table for picnics, family holiday meals, or barbecues.
Have you found Comeback Sauce in your area? I have not seen it in Spokane so I am glad that we can make it at home.
