Backyard BBQ Burger Sauce

Backyard Barbecue Burger Sauce (Paleo, GAPS)

You'll love how much a simple sauce (that lasts well in the fridge due to the magic of fermentation!) dresses up the ordinary hamburger. You will see below that this sauce is made from a bunch of other condiments like mayo and lactofermented pickles- you can purchase most of these at the store, or spend a little more time and make them all at once so your fridge is stocked with condiments that promote health.
