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.

Making Easy Southern Comeback Sauce Recipe |

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.

      Hi Susan,

      In the post I mentioned personalizing the Comeback Sauce with your favorite type of hot sauce. 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. Happy Cooking!

    I am allergic to honey, is there something that can be used as a substitute?

    • Sommerposted September 9, 2016 at 10:27 pm Reply

      Hi Sydelle!

      Try agave, stevia, or plain sugar. :)
