Making my own Raising Canes Sauce

There are a chain of restaurants that opened up in our area called Raising Canes.  For those who are not familiar, they serve chicken fingers along with crinkle cut fries, cole slaw, and Texas Toast.  What makes the meal so special? They serve it with a secret formula dipping sauce.

Naturally, I started searching around on the internet, and came across this recipe:

1/2 cup mayonnaise (not miracle whip!)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon (just a splash) white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all ingredients and chill until ready to serve. Serve with chicken strips or nuggets (fries are also great dipped in it!). Serves 2-4.

This recipe is REAL close to the real deal.  I went out to Raising Canes and brought back some of their dipping sauce and compared side by side.  I felt that this homemade dipping sauce might be a little more tart, but overall, I can’t complain.

Here’s what mine looked like:

I would suggest maybe adding some paprika, or using lemon juice instead of vinegar.  Leave it in the fridge for 24 hours before using, for best results.  Experimentation is key.
