NEW YORK, July 12 (UPI) -- Dan Coudreaut, executive chef for McDonald's fast food restaurants, has revealed the secret behind the Big Mac's secret sauce.

All you need to make the Big Mac sauce is store-bought mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, classic yellow mustard, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

The paprika, Coudreaut said, "gives it a little flavor but it also helps to enhance the color a little bit."

Coudreaut recently made a video demonstrating that anyone can make the secret sauce in their own home.

"With food it's either contrasting flavors like sweet and sour," Coudreaut said, "or it's contrasting flavors like tomato and basil. Here with the Big Mac sauce it's contrasting flavors."
