Homemade burger sauce - take this to a family BBQ, and everyone will want the recipe!

Have you ever wanted to have a recipe that everyone asks for when you serve it up? To be that person at family BBQs who’s being pestered for details of just how they made their contribution, scribbling it down on scraps of paper to hand out?

Make. This. Sauce. And you will be the envy of everybody.

The flavours in this sauce are insane. I love a good veggie burger, and I often use shop-bought ones like those you can see in the pictures (it’s true, I’m not really superwoman after all) – and this homemade burger sauce is a really easy way to turn your bog-standard burger into something really special.

It’s got some pretty strange ingredients, which just means that people will be all the more eager to get the recipe from you – I bet they’d never guess exactly what goes into it.

Start with some lettuce. Yes, this burger sauce contains lettuce. Bear with me.

Throw the lettuce in a high-powered blender (I used my trusty Froothie blender as usual), and add some pickled gherkins, ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard.

All the flavours that should appear on a burger, in one easy smear.

This kind of burger sauce is often served at cheapy burger trucks, probably just so that they can make their burgers taste a bit like vegetables without actually having to spend money on fresh veg (I’m sure they don’t make their own sauce). But, don’t let that put you off! This burger sauce is tasty and tangy, and smooth and creamy, all at the same time, and it wouldn’t be out of place even on the most gourmet burger.

You can add some extra salad as well if you want, like I did – the burger sauce gives all the flavour you need, but I do like a little bit of crunch on a burger too.

Do you have a recipe that everyone’s always asking for?
