This is one of my favorite recipes for serving with breaded chicken tenders, or breaded fish. It has a tang that hits your taste buds like a hammer… It is’s very easy to assemble, and if you can let it sit in the fridge overnight, you won’t be disappointed. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
