Subway Sweet Onion Sauce

This is from the original copycat recipe.

I worked at subway for 8 years, I’ve been there since sweet onion sauce and the chicken teriyaki first came to be. Now that I work there no longer, it’s to expensive to get my fix everyday.

I found this recipe. It’s not precise, but it has similar flavors, textures, and sweetness to make a good substitute. The downside is you need to start buying a lot of cornsyrup to make it.

The Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich is one of Subway’s biggest new product rollouts in chain history. The sandwich is made with common ingredients: teriyaki-glazed chicken breast strips, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, and olives. But what sets it apart from all other teriyaki chicken sandwiches is Subway’s delicious Sweet Onion Sauce. You can ask for as much of the scrumptious sauce as you want on your custom-made sub at the huge sandwich chain, but you won’t get any extra to take home, even if you offer to pay. Now you can add a clone version of the sauce to your home-built sandwich masterpieces whenever you want.

1/2 cup light corn syrup 1tablespoon minced white onion 1tablespoon red wine vinegar 2teaspoons white vinegar 1teaspoon balsamic vinegar 1teaspoon brown sugar 1teaspoon buttermilk powder 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice 1/8 teaspoon poppy seeds 1/8 teaspoon salt pinch cracked black pepper pinch garlic powder

2. Heat the mixture uncovered in the microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high until the mixture boils rapidly.

So final balance I’ve found for my fine, naturally oily hair uses a conditioner and the baking soda. Vinegar had adverse effects in my hair. Particularly my roots would get really oily and my ends were crunchy, no matter how well I rinsed my hair. I was using distilled Apple Cider Vinegar.

I’ve been using daily:
1/2 cup Baking Soda
2 Tbs distilled water
Make a paste, massage into scalp, rinse thoroughly

Follow with Pureology Precious Oils conditioner. Leave in 1-2 minutes, rinse thoroughly.

This particular conditoner has none of the bad things in it I listed in my first post, at least according to their label. I spent a lot fo time in the store reading their labels. My hair does not feel burned out, waxy, or like straw using this.




The apple cider vinegar and my hair type aren’t getting along. I’m still using baking soda, but I switched the vinegar for small amounts of Pureology’s Precious Oil conditioner. I need to find a cheaper alternative, maybe brew my own from oils and herbs, but my hair is responding much better. My ends before were fine, but after time, the vinegar was actually drying them out. This isn’t the effect it is supposed to have, but it’s already established that I have hair that responds abnormally to products.

We’ll see what happens!
