Alright raise your hand if you love condiments as much as I do.  I hope you are raising your hand high because I have both mine up.  I am a condiment girl through and through and this tastes just like your classic comeback sauce but is made with really great ingredients that you can feel good about.

The base is Lavva original yogurt.  I am obsessed with this brand of plant based yogurt because not is it only dairy free, it has no added sugar, it is made with only real food ingredients no gums, pectins, or weird additives) yet it tastes GREAT.  Plus it is super creamy so it makes a great base for this sauce!  If you try this sauce and you decide you want to try all things Lavva be sure to check out my creamy horseradish sauce and my sweet and spicy sriracha sauce too!

Let’s Make Some Healthy Comeback Sauce!

Alright once you’ve got your Lavva as mentioned above all you need is to gather the rest of your ingredients and then mix them all together and you are good to go!  I usually mix right in the Lavva cup but this one does get pretty full so be careful.  If you are cooking for a crowd I’d say double or even triple this recipe. 

The only other things to keep in mind is that if you want this recipe to remain sugar free be sure to use a ketchup that has no added sugar.  And if you want it to remain gluten free be sure to get a gluten free Worcestershire sauce.  You can find a good ketchup option here and a  list of Worcestershire sauces here.

I love this dip on burgers, but also for dipping my cracker breaded chicken nuggets, some good chicken tenders, and even sweet potato fries!

What will you use it on??

In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:

  • possibly a mixing bowl, if you don’t want to use the cup
  • a spoon to stir
