Have you ever heard of Zaxby’s? Chances are if you don’t live in the South, you probably haven’t heard of it (though, judging by their store locator I see some locations in Indiana)! I had never heard of Zaxby’s until I moved to Georgia a few years ago. They specialize in made to order chicken fingers and wings and also have a variety of salads, appetizers, and sandwiches. Being that their menu mainly consist of chicken, I had never tried it out. Then one day my husband was talking about how good their french fries are and it had never crossed my mind that they might have good fries…..boy was I wrong! They have the best crinkle cut seasoned fries, AND they have delicious sauces to accompany them. However, one thing that is a little different at Zaxby’s is that you actually have to pay for their sauce. Good for them, bad for me, considering I would probably drink their Zax Sauce if I didn’t have to pay for it.
Since we eat french fries at home a good bit, I decided to make my own Zax Sauce. After a couple of tries, it came out great, and I will definitely keep making it at home. It does have one ingredient I am not really a fan of, mayonnaise, so I think next time I make it I will try out a healthier alternative using Greek yogurt. I’ll keep you posted! For now you get the full fat, purely decadent copy cat Zax Sauce recipe. Enjoy!
