Recipe Tips

  • This is a basic sauce, feel free to adjust ingredients as necessary.
  • If it’s too thick add a small amount of water to adjust thickness.
  • Use yogurt instead of mayonnaise for a lighter dip.
  • I prefer it slightly tangier so double up the vinegar.

Prep ahead – That’s the awesome thing about homemade sauces, they can be made ahead of time if needed. A lot of the time, they intensify in flavor after originally made.

Storing – Store the sauce in an airtight container, such as a mason jar, in the fridge. Due to it being mayonnaise-based, do not let it sit out at room temperature for too long.

You can store this sauce for up to one week if stored properly. If you’re using it as a glaze or marinade, you may need to double or triple the recipe, but be conscious of how much excess you make as it doesn’t last as long in the fridge as bottled pre-made sauces do.


I would not suggest freezing the sauce since it has mayonnaise in it.
