Licks' Famous "Secret Sauce"

Total Time

Licks was first established in the Toronto neighbourhood I live in, back in the late 70s. I remember the first store, with its 2 booths. They now have numerous locations. This is their "secret sauce", which was published in a Canadian magazine back in 1984. So, it's not so secret when you have the recipe!

Long time ago I had a recipe similar to this, but I lost it! Sad me. So happy to find this! I changed it a bit to my memory of my lost recipe. I added in more mustard powder and tossed in some Worcestershire sauce. Put just enough relish in it to give it the taste of pickles without being overwhelming and halved the cream. I'm so happy I found this! We're putting this on our burgers tonight. Thanks!
