Paying Attention

The new issue of Saveur arrived yesterday and in a section on favorite restaurants in Mississippi there was a casual mention of "come back sauce." I got it that "it was so good you'd want to come back for more" but what could it be? didn't know; but Ma Google did.

This is a sauce that's used all across Mississippi on cold shrimp, as a salad dressing, French fry dip, onion ring sauce or a dipping sauce for crudites.

There are a lot of ingredients but it does sound good. If it is, I'm thinking Christmas presents for locals (it has to be kept refrigerated.)

2 cups mayonnaise
1 cup catsup
1 cup chili sauce
1 cup cottonseed oil (not sure it's available locally -- vegetable oil would probably be okay.)
1 large onion, diced
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 T garlic, minced
2 T paprika
2 T water
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T black or white pepper
2 teas. dry mustard

Put all together, puree it, put it in a jar, cap and keep it in the refrigerator.
