Southern-Style Comeback Sauce


Whether it’s extra-crispy air-fried French fries or juicy chicken tenders, some food just tastes better when complemented by a homemade dipping sauce. And what better accompaniment than a Southern-style condiment that’s as easy to make as it is to dip, dollop and smother on your favorite meals and snacks? Made with mayo, ketchup, Worcestershire, hot sauce, paprika and finely diced pickles, this tangy “comeback” sauce is a Southern tradition that’ll definitely keep your family comin’ back for more! (Ya hear?)
