Comeback Sauce… The quintessential southern dipping sauce served with everything from fried oysters to raw veggies.

It’s a poor man’s remoulade, made with mayonnaise, ketchup, hot sauce, and a couple other well-selected ingredients.

If you are a southerner, have ever lived in the south, or wish you lived in the south, you should know how to make classic Southern Comeback Sauce.

To make Southern Comeback Sauce start with mayonnaise and add just enough ketchup to taint it orange.

Then add a little honey, a little Worcestershire sauce, a little cajun seasoning, and hot sauce. The hot sauce you select is extremely personal…

Really, you can use any kind of hot sauce you like.

Sriracha, Frank’s RedHot, and Cholula are three I always have on hand. Or you can go with something a tad more simple like Tabasco.

  1. This looks great. Making up a batch for fried catfish patties for our Kentucky Derby Party today. Will probably use 3/4 tbl of honey and 3/4 tbl of sweet chili sauce in mine. I’m always looking to add sweet chili sauce whenever I can. If you ever decide to add a 4th hot sauce to your stash, I highly recommend Crystal’s. I already have the 3 you mentioned in the house. Great minds…………………..
