Burger King Zesty Sauce Recipe

Most people love to have Burger King zesty sauce with onion rings. The sauce pairs perfectly with any deep-fried food. It is Burger King’s one of the most popular sauce recipes.

The main ingredient which spices up the sauce is horseradish and cayenne pepper.

In November 2019, Burger King ran out of zesty sauce due to the global horseradish shortage.

The shortage occurred due to strange weather patterns and even nowadays, the sauce is not always on Burger King’s menu.

When you visit them, there is a very high probability that you have to request them for this particular sauce.

I love to have onion rings with zesty sauce, but during horseradish shortage, I wasn’t able to get it at their outlets.

So, I looked for some alternatives for zesty sauce and got to know about Arby’s horsey sauce. But Arby’s sauce wasn’t like the one the Burger King serves on the menu.

Then, I decided to research more about the sauce and make it at home. When I made the sauce, it was exactly a copycat recipe of Burger King.
