Burger Sauce [Whole30, Paleo]

Because I’m saucy.

With all the summer picnics and cookouts we are likely having in our backyards with way less people and six feet of distance, I thought I would share my favorite sauce to put on my burgers.  When I say this sauce made me be able to eat burgers WITHOUT cheese (yes, it is possible), I knew we had a keeper.  This stuff saves me every time during Whole30, and now I am to a point where I make it year round, regardless of whether it’s a Whole30 month or not. 

This sauce is super simple to make, with ingredients that are likely already in your pantry.  I personally love a good “deconstructed burger” (a burger on a bed of mixed greens instead of bread, also known as a salad), but my husband will always opt for the bread.  Either way, this sauce is good on any burger, served any kind of way  So whip up a batch and pack it up for your next cookout or picnic.



  • 1 cup of Whole30 compliant mayo.  My favorite is here.
  • 1 TBSP of classic yellow mustard
  • ¾ TSP of paprika
  • ½ TSP of onion powder
  • ½ TSP of garlic powder
  • ½ TBSP of red wine vinegar
  • ½ TBSP of white wine vinegar
  • ¾ TBSP of dill pickle relish (or finely chopped dill pickle)


  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week


  • You can add a dash of Whole30 compliant sriracha or hot sauce to add an extra kick.
  • Save on dishes to clean and make in a mason jar or a bowl with a lid and use the same mixing dish as the serving dish.
  • If you are not doing a Whole30, feel free to use your favorite mayo as the base for this sauce.
