    I have no argument with your taste, it completely amazes me that restauranteurs and chefs do things like put cinnamon in salad dressing and call it "French"!!!

    I hope you find your recipe...

      OK ... here is my best version. I know the ingredients are correct. The amounts may need to be adjusted. Hope you get this.
      1/2 cup mayo.
      1 T. orange juice
      1 t. cinnamon
      1/4 cup ketsup
      2 T. sugar

      Good luck,

        This may sound silly, but have you tried calling a location when it's slow (I'd say between 2 and 4 MST on a weekday) and asking them for the recipe? Tell them your situation, you just might be pleasantly surprised.
