The History: The story goes that Comeback Sauce was first served by the Dennery family after World War 2 when they opened up a Greek restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi. Ain’t no tellin’ what the true recipe is since there are more versions of this recipe than mudcats in the Mississippi, but it always seems to include mayonnaise, garlic, chili sauce, and paprika. People smother it on literally everything. It has even been known to convert many a self-proclaimed “ranch-dressing person.” Besides being endlessly versatile, this Queen Mother of condiments offers a classic combination of flavors that makes everything from seafood to frog hair taste heavenly. But remember, like any good Mother, she will summon you home. And by home, we mean anywhere Mississippi Comeback Sauce happens to live.
