This copycat is great. Many people claim the secret sauce is simply thousand island. But it's not. thousand island is sweeter and more tangy. I substitute equivalent amount of dried minced onion. Just rehydrate a few minutes ahead and squeeze out excess liquid. I like the flavor better and it lasts much longer in the fridge. Fresh onion spoils pretty fast. Im going to fiddle around modifying homemade thousand island recipes and see if I can get close. This is only to use mayo and ketchup and get out of buying french dressing. We don't care for french dressing and, I don't care to buy it just to make this recipe. A little penny pinching and one less container in the fridge taking up space. Thanks for sharing, Todd

Excellent recipe! I wasn't looking to recreate a Big Mac exactly, I just love the sauce and it tastes AMAZING on home grilled burgers. I love to keep a jar in the fridge to have on hand.

LOVE this!!!! We make this all of the time for salads. Makes a plain lettuce salad very good.
Great recipe and multi-use condiment that is easy/quick to make. Even can be a salad dressing.

Awesome spread. Perhaps one little ingredient missing (according to my recollection of the Big Mac from years ago)... a dash or two of white pepper.

Found actual list of McD's ingredients on their web site under nutrition & Ingredients, Yours is better and healthier !
It's almost an exact duplicate. After mixing it up, I have found that putting it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and remixing, and then chilling helps a little. It mixes easier while slightly enhancing the taste and improves the texture to a more creamy consistency.
