Here's What You Need

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons creole seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic finely chopped or pressed (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • Kosher salt and white pepper to taste

Here's What You Do

  • MIx all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and set in the refrigerator for one hour up to overnight.


This can get kind of spicy. First, the Creole seasoning may contain cayenne pepper and raw garlic will have its own kind of heat, so give it a taste before you add the white pepper, the cayenne pepper or the garlic to make sure it's to your liking. Of course, if you like it spicy, go for it!
This recipe yields about 1 cup of dressing and is easy to increase.  I am using 1 tablespoon per serving.
You can serve this right away but its better to let the flavors all come together-at least an hour, four hours is better and overnight is best!
