This may sound really dumb, but what do you guys think are in these sauces? The white sauce tastes like mayo but seems more liquid, and the red is almost a ketchup with hot sauce mixed in?

Thanks in advance!!

      I've never tried making these sauces at home, but if were going to try the white one it would be a mayo/yogurt/garlic sort of thing. That second link looks like a good place to start.

      The hot sauce is different than the sabrett onions, though. The one truck in particular that I frequent has a hot sauce that is most probably harissa based. I use a harissa at home that comes in a tube (I buy it at Kalustyan's) that is the consistency of ketchup- all you would probably have to do is thin it out with some lemon juice or vinegar. It'll be pretty hot, though.
