Utah's Favorite Condiment

The places we have visited so often influence the foods we love and eat all the time. Such is the case with what has become our favorite dipping sauce recipe of all time – a knock-off of Utah’s favorite condiment, the 1940s pink-hued dip known as Fry Sauce, reportedly first made by Don Carlos Edwards, the owner of Don Carlos’ Barbecue.

Dear hubby came across the original fry sauce on a business trip through Salt Lake City, Utah, when he caught a quick lunch at a fast-food chain and fell in love with the mayo and ketchup mixture that inspired him to come home and make his own.

Over the years, Dear Hubby, who by the way loves concocting foods in the kitchen, too, has modified the original mixture of an equal amount of Hellman’s Mayonnaise and ketchup to include a bit of spicy zing. Today’s recipe is his rendition and a complete fry sauce knock-off recipe resulting from another knock-off concoction (discovered in Idaho) that provides for salsa.

I'm so happy you're here,

I’ve always loved food. I’ve loved to think about it, write about it, and talk about it. Then suddenly, one day, everything I thought I knew about nourishing my body changed when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE now my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
