Dips, Sauces, & Dressings – Catherine’s Recipes 5

COMEBACK SAUCE!! Catherine had the original recipe from the creator of Comeback Sauce, The Rotisserie Restaurant! This sauce/dressing has been dubbed “Mississippi’s House Dressing” – and now you have it, right here in Dips, Sauces, & Dressings!

The story of Comeback Sauce/Dressing started in Jackson, Mississippi, in the 1920s, when Greek immigrants flooded into Jackson and went to work in the diners and cafes.

About 1929, one of those Greek immigrants, Alex Dennery (born in Greece in 1901 as Alexander Ionnis Tournaris), opened The Rotisserie, which for generations was one of Jackson’s favorite restaurants.

Alex, after asking his kitchen staff to come up with a unique house dressing, and being disappointed with the results, took matters into his own hands. The result is what has become the classic southern sauce known as Comeback Sauce. Because, you know, you’ll love it so much that you’ll come back for more!

Be sure and download your copy of Alex Dennery’s original recipe below, along with some other amazing dips, sauces, & dressings!
