The Best Mississippi Comeback Sauce (Vegan)

If you’re a fan of tangy, creamy sauces with a bit of kick, this vegan Mississippi comeback sauce is as good as it gets. It’s creamy, tangy, full of flavor, and provides just the right amount of kick. Oil-free and gluten-free.

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


  • 1 cup vegan cashew mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon of horseradish (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cashew mayonnaise, ketchup, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, horseradish, and apple cider vinegar. Whisk everything together until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  2. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix well, making sure all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings as needed. If you like your sauce spicy, you can add a few dashes of hot sauce to the mix.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the sauce for at least an hour to let the flavors meld together.
  5. Once the sauce has chilled and the flavors have had time to develop, give it a quick stir and taste it again. Adjust the seasonings as needed, then serve the sauce alongside your favorite dishes.


Pour any leftover Mississippi Comeback into a jar or airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to a week. This cashew mayo will thicken as it sits so thin it out with a little water or lemon juice.
