Secret Sauce? Maybe Not

I'm not here to promote fast food in the least bit but we've all been there, whether it be drunk in the middle of the night, nursing a hangover the next day, on a long road trip or maybe even just in the mood for it but we've all had it. America's most popular sandwich - The Big Mac. You've heard the jingle: two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun and maybe you've wondered what that "special sauce" is? Most of us have justified it as Thousand Island dressing but it's a little more complex than that. Now this may not be the official recipe but it's damn sure close. Try it.. I implore you, even if you don't want to put it on a sandwich :)

1/4 cup miracle whip
1/4 cup mayonaise
3 tablespoons french salad dressing
1/2 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
11/2 tablespoon dill pickle relish
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon ketchup
1/8 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients together
Put in microwave for 25 seconds
cover put in refrigerator for an hour
