With just a few ingredients you can have this simple and flavor-packed sauce ready.

  • MAYO– Mayo is the most important ingredient. We use Hellman’s Real Mayo for this recipe but you can use your favorite mayos.
  • SRIRACHA– For the spicy heat in the sauce, you’ll want to add Sriracha. If you don’t have Sriracha, you can also use hot sauce or even tabasco
  • LEMON– The lemon gives this sauce a zesty kick to the sauce. You can also use lime instead, if that is what you have on hand.
  • SUGAR– Sugar neutralizes the flavors.
  • OIL– Oil gives the sauce creaminess, you can use melted butter as a substitute.
  • GARLIC– Enhances the flavors
  • SALT & PEPPER– Season with salt and pepper for that extra flavor.
