Tangy Bistro Sauce/Dip

A while back, I was wondering around at Cash & Carry (restaurant supply store) and stumbled upon a bottle of Grey Poupon Bistro Sauce.  It looked very tasty, but only available in a large bottle, so after reading the ingredients I decided I would make my own version.  Don't know if my version of this sauce/dip tastes anything like the Grey Poupon Bistro Sauce but I really like how my version turned out.  After quite a bit of experimenting, I couldn't get the spices right and then stumbled upon a bottle of Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning at our local WalMart store and determined that this spice blend would possibly be what the sauce needed.  This was the missing link to the sauce and the seasoning completed my experimentation.  I tried the sauce with garlic and onion powder but it wasn't the right taste so I resorted to using fresh.  Most of the ingredients for this sauce are probably already in your refrigerator.  The best way to describe this sauce is, like fast food secret sauce/fry sauce on steroids.  This dip is amazing with the Po-Jo potatoes (like the Shakey's Pizza Mojo potatoes) from one of my earlier blog post as well a french fries, onion rings, hamburgers, etc.   Hope you give it a try...

Tangy Bistro Sauce/Dip

1 cup Mayonnaise
3 tsp. fresh minced onion (about 1/4 onion)
1 tsp. horseradish sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/4 cup Chili Sauce
1 Tbsp. Ketchup
1 tsp. Grey Poupon mustard
1 clove fresh garlic, minced in garlic press
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Cavander's Greek Seasoning

Add all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk well. Cover and refrigerate.

Makes about 1 2/3 cups

All of the ingredients needed.  Looks like a lot, but not really.

With a microplane or fine grater, grate about 1/4 of an onion

Measure out 3 teaspoons of the grated onion and add to bowl.

All of the measured ingredients before whisking.  I agree, doesn't look very appealing.

After whisking all the ingredients together.
