An elevated and healthier take on the traditional secret sauce for hamburgers. It’s fresh, sweet and will bring back all the fast food feels but in a gourmet way. Use it on burgers, steak or roasted potatoes. 



3 heirloom tomatoes, chopped

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoons relish 

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

sesame seeds for topping


  1. Chop the heirloom tomatoes in medium sized chunks and transfer to a bowl. Drain the excess liquid using a strainer, then lightly pat the tomatoes dry.
  2. Add the mayonnaise, relish, maple syrup, salt and pepper to the tomatoes and mix.
  3. Store in a jar in the refrigerator. When ready to serve family style transfer to a bowl and top with sesame seeds, or serve it directly on a hamburger, steak etc. and finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.


  • If stored in a jar it will last a couple of days, it is best served fresh.
  • The sesame seeds are reminiscent of the sesame burger bun. You can also sprinkle with garlic or onion flakes.
