Mayo lemon sauce 


Some recipes are elaborate, but some are as simple as mixing everything together. This recipe here is of the latter kind. 

A simple and delicious sauce made with a few ingredients, it was a perfect addition to the burrito bowl I served sometime back. This recipe is from the book Travel, Surf, Cook by Salt and Silver, which was also the source for last week’s Cafe De olla recipe. 

This recipe goes to this week’s Cooking from cookbook event by Valli. Read on for the recipe. 


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard 
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce 
  • Black pepper per taste
  • Juice of one lemon


  1. Mix everything well in a bowl. Adjust the ingredients according to your taste. Serve with chips. I served this as part of a burrito bowl with black beans.
