If you have ever been to Bad Daddy's Burger Bar, you will know about this sauce.
Now, most of what they have on the menu is not compliant to FMD, including this sauce, but they DO have a build your own salad that looks like it could be made pretty darn close to compliant.
My husband loves this sauce. Our server last time, told us what it was made of. I came home and experimented with compliant ingredients and here we have it.
It is smokey and ranchy and just plain delicious. This would be good with sweet potato fries, jicama fries, roasted cauliflower. You could put this on burgers or tacos. Heck, even salads.
Now- it is a combo of 3 of my recipes. Mayo, Ranch and my Smokey BBQ Sauce. (if you have my Tomato-less BBQ sauce, you could add the liquid smoke to it and use that combo instead of the Smokey BBQ Sauce)
Here are the links to all 3:
Even if you are starting from scratch, the whole thing comes together in about 15 minutes or so. Just let it set up a bit to marry flavors.
Pro Tip: If your sauce is thin, you can whisk in 1/4 tsp xanthan gum to thicken it up.
1/2 cup Ranch from above recipe
3T Smokey BBQ Sauce from above recipe
1 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
Whisk together in a small bowl. Add the xanthan gum if you need, as instructed above. Taste and adjust seasoning. Pour into jar with a lid and refrigerate for a couple hours before serving.
