Southern Living

This sweet-and-sour sauce with a peppery bite takes less than five minutes to make and is terrific over hot and cold vegetables or drizzled on a Guacamole Mini Taco. I also use this formula to dress Jalapeño Coleslaw.

Yields: 1 1/2 cups


1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tablespoon pickled jalapeños, finely chopped (optional)

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper

pinch of salt

How to Make It

Place the mayonnaise a small bowl. Whisk in the flavor base ingredients. Taste and adjust the seasonings as desired. The dressing keeps, covered and refrigerated, for up to 1 week.
