Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: This sauce is best when prepped ahead since the ingredients have a chance to meld together. Make it at least two hours in advance for the best taste.
  • To Store: Keep secret sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If fresh garlic is used the sauce will last for up to 2 weeks. If you use garlic powder it can last for up to a month, if you can resist eating it all up before then!
  • To Freeze: This is not recommended as the mayo will separate.
