1 quart

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 cup Wesson oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco

Place all ingredients in a quart-sized jar. Shake well. Serve cold over shrimp or on anything you want. This sauce tastes good on everything—it’s why it’s called “come back! sauce.”
