When it comes to condiments, the options are endless. There is ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, pickle and even chocolate shake. However, one of the best condiments (hands down) is the fry sauce.
A fry sauce is a creamy, smooth dip made from the mixture of ketchup, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Legend has it that Utah restaurateur Don Carlos Edwards invented this recipe in the 1940s for his fast-food chain – Arctic Circle.
It is undoubtedly a cult-favorite of Utah countries and other neighboring states. With time the yummy sauce has become more famous around other parts of the world as well.
The variants of this sauce can be found throughout the world because everybody absolutely loves this sauce. For instance, a similar kind of sauce known as mayo-ketchup which is basically the mixture of ketchup, mayonnaise and garlic is popularly served in Puerto Rico.
The best quality about fry sauce is that it is neither too sweet nor too tangy. In fact, the dip offers both sweet and sour flavors. It is slightly sweet, creamy with just a hint of tang from the vinegar.
You needn’t have to go to a fast food chain to get this sauce. It can be easily made at home. Here’s its simple recipe which hardly takes 5 minutes to prepare.
Fry sauce is less sugar laden as compared to ketchup, unless you add extra sugar in it. The sweet and tangy flavor of the sauce will keep you fresh and depression away.
