Golf Sauce

If you are from Utah you know all about fry sauce…the delicious combination created from mixing mayo with ketchup.  But in South America this mixture is salsa golf.  Yes, golf as in the ‘birdie’, ‘eagle’, ‘putt’.  How did this come about?  Legend has it that the sauce was invented by Noble laureate Louis Federico Leloir during a visit to a golf club.  He wanted something flavorful to go well with the shrimp he was eating.  He was a physician and should have known better that to partake of this unhealthy sauce, but there you go.  That’s the story.
