  • In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and sour cream. These ingredients create a creamy base for the sauce.
  • Stir in the smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, white vinegar, sugar, and Dijon mustard to the mixture. These components add depth and complexity to the sauce, with the vinegar providing a slight tanginess that balances the creaminess of the mayonnaise and sour cream.
  • Mix in the pickle relish, which introduces bits of texture and a mild sweetness that contrasts the smoky and tangy flavors.
  • Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste. If using, add a drop of liquid smoke for an enhanced smoky flavor, reminiscent of a grill.
  • Ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. For a smoother sauce, you can blend the mixture using an immersion blender or a standard blender.
  • For the best flavor, cover and refrigerate the sauce for at least an hour before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together.

Storage Tips

Store the Big Tasty sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. The acidic components like vinegar help to preserve the sauce, but it’s best enjoyed fresh for optimal flavor.
