My Mother's recipe for a spicy, tangy sauce for hot dogs, french fries or hamburgers...

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yummy! We tried this on french fries like Jen suggested and this was a big hit in the Test Kitchen. This sauce will be just as good on a hot dog. Definitely make this for your next cookout. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
