"It's the infamous Utah fry sauce! May substitute barbecue sauce for ketchup. Serve with French fries or onion rings." — Keith Horrocks

If you want this to taste more like Artic Circle you have to add buttermilk. Our Article circle used to use this 'white sauce' (fry sauce before the catsup) on it's hamburgers.
If you don't have buttermilk I've heard you could use a bit of dill pickle juice.
Ketchup and Mayo alone is not Utah fry sauce.
2 parts mayo to 1 part ketchup and white vinegar.
1/8 c mayo, 1 1/2 T ketchup, 1/2t white vinegar.
(The white vinegar makes it smooth and adds flavor)
Thats the recipe! :-)
My mother worked at a Ogden, UT Blue Onion restaurant in the early 70's, so we grew up with this. It is a very simple and general condiment for lots of things in place of ketchup, mayo or similar condiments. I have always known and made it as the "Secret Sauce" because that's what mom called it. None of our friends knew about it when we moved to CA or elsewhere. We've converted a lot of people that just can't do plain ketchup any more. You can tweak the ratio to whatever your preference is...(more mayo, more ketchup or 50/50). You really can't mess it up. We've never measured it. It's great to see someone put this recipe up to share---why didn't I think of it! LOL
I found that if you add a couple of drops of liquid smoke it tastes just like you got some wild dipping sauce from Good Times Burger. YUMMY!
The ingredients sound a little weird, but suprisingly enough it's deicious. I ate this on a hamburger. I haven't tried this with BBQ sauce because I enjoyed the ketchup so much. Don't think hubby would care for it...he's not a big fan of mayo. Very quick and simple. Thanks for sharing.
I've been making this sauce for years, but I wasn't aware it had a name.As a matter of fact, a Utah native gave me the tip. We love it with burgers, fries, chicken, fish and on sandwiches. For a variation try tartar sauce 2 to 1 with ketchup. Its great too. Thanks Keith.
This sauce has been a favorite in New Orleans for years. Try adding (to taste) horseradish when eating boiled or fried seafood. It's awesome!!!!
Very simple and can be adjusted to your own personal tastes. Kick it up with some tabasco or play it tame with a bit of BBQ sauce. I've had some really great french fry sauces on this site and this is a great base - probably good for kids.
