Our Homemade Yum Yum Sauce Recipe requires only 5-ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make. With just mayonnaise, sugar, ketchup, rice vinegar, and Lawry’s Seasoning Salt you can make amazing restaurant-style white sauce to pour over everything.

    Could you use Splenda (or another alternative sweetener) instead of sugar?

      Absolutely! If you have an alternative sweetener you prefer, go with that! Make sure to check the packaging for substitution measurements. Not all sweeteners convert as 1:1 ratio.
