Yield: nearly 1 cup...enough for about 8 Big Macs


  • 1/4 cup Kraft Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Wishbone deluxe French salad dressing (the orange stuff)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Heinz sweet relish

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried, minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix everything very well in a small container. There better be no streaks!
  2. Microwave for 25 seconds, and stir well again.
  3. Cover, and refrigerate at LEAST 1 hour before using (to allow all of the flavors to "meld").
