These five dipping sauces are on my rotation whenever I’m working with things like chicken. In truth, I use them with chicken, pork, and even fish. And how about using them with a nice plate of veggies...

Rather than post five separate recipes (life’s too short), I thought I would just include all of them in one.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sauce Essentials: Dipping Sauces

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Chef’s Note: In all cases, take the ingredients, and blend together, then refrigerate in a tightly sealed jar.
    They will last for 10 – 14 days.
  3. Chef’s Tip: I like to make my own mayonnaise for these dips. If you use homemade mayo, then the shelf life will only be about 5 – 7 days.
  4. Chef’s Tip: If you can store them in the fridge overnight before using, that will give the ingredients a chance to know one another, and they will taste even yummier the next day.
  5. If you would like to make these dips more vegan then substitute the mayonnaise with Vegenaise. I use it all the time for my vegan clients.
  6. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
  7. ADDITIONAL RECIPE
    If you have never baked you garlic, you should give it a try. Here's a recipe on how it's accomplished:
