Ingredients and Variations

Copycat Big Mac dressing has all of the flavors of the fast-food version, but is made fresh at home with no added sugar or preservatives!

Mayonnaise – Use regular or light mayonnaise for this sauce.

Relish – Sweet or dill pickle relish works, or you can finely chop up pickles if relish isn’t available.

Pro Tip

If using dill relish, add a pinch of sugar to sweeten it just a bit!

Mustard – Plain yellow mustard has a bright flavor and a thin consistency. Why not try a Dijon or spicy hot mustard?

Seasonings – White, red, or apple cider vinegar will all bring the tangy flavor to this sauce! Avoid using balsamic because it’s too sweet.

Variations – In a pinch for time? Grab a bottle of Thousand Island Dressing or French dressing and add relish and extra seasonings to get the blend you want!
