Cucumbers with Comeback Dressing ala da Creature



da Creture was allowed to pick one of his cucumbers today and he only eats cucumbers with da Mama's special Comeback Dressing. 

He wants everyone to know how to make it, so I decided to share a recipe for a change.

This is an evolution of my grandmother's shrimp sauce that was one of those happy accidents a long time ago when I didn't know the difference between cayenne pepper and chili powder and has been a family favorite ever since.  It is good on cucumbers, shrimp, sharp cheddar cheese, salads and as a coleslaw dressing (just cabbage and comeback, yum!)


da Mama's Comeback Dressing

1/4 c. mayo (I use Kraft)
1 1/2-3 Tbsp ketchup (I like it more ketchupish for shrimp, less for cabbage and salads)
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
Four or five good shakes of Worcesteshire sauce
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
lots of fresh ground black pepper (or cayenne)

Whisk together.    Adjust it to your tastes at will and enjoy! :)
