How to store it:

Storing dressings are pretty easy. Although it consists of organic ingredients, when stored properly, it can last for a long time. 

In this recipe, mayonnaise is the fastest expiring recipe which is up to a week. To make sure it lasts for that time, store it in a glass jar.

Unlike plastics, glass is better in keeping liquid items. Make sure to seal the lid tightly and refrigerate it.

Recipe Tips:

  • If you want to save some time, you can just actually mix all the ingredients together. However, you may have to mix some more since there might be more lumps in the beginning.
  • Don’t have sweet pickle relish in your grocery, you can replace it with gherkin relish or most commonly known as a fermented cucumber.
  • Using apple cider vinegar makes the condiment healthier. If you do not have this option, white wine vinegar will perfectly work fine. 
  • Out of onion powder? No worries, a finely minced onion will still get you that sweet and tangy flavor.
  • Want to make a homemade burger paired with this recipe? Preparing it in the following order arranging from the lowest: bottom burger bread, this sauce, onion, lettuce, cheese, patty, and pickles. Scape additional dressings before topping the burger lid.

We love Big Mac sauce on cheese burger dinner salads. We just use thousand island dressing and it does the trick.
