My family loves simple Homemade Dipping Sauces for Chicken, Chips, Appetizers and Pizza! Can we just eat something plain please!? Nope. I try to be creative in my cooking, because eating and cooking can get a bit boring. This is just one simple way to add a little pizzazz into an everyday food, it keeps them coming back for more!
This is also a great way to serve your company simple Appetizers then let them choose the flavor they want to add to their foods.
4 Homemade Dipping Sauces
Shari’s Sweet and Sour Sauce
This is an original…from me! Enjoy!
- 1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice
- 1/4 Cup distilled White vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 2 Tablespoon White Sugar
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon Ketchup
- 1 1/8 Cornstarch dissolved in 2 tsp. water
Directions: Combine Juice, vinegar, sugars, ketchup in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the Cornstarch/water mixture and cook. Stirring while sauce boils for a bit and thickens. It won’t be too thick..just right. Let cool a little before serving. YUM! Big Hit!
Asian Peanut Sauce
- 1/3 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter
- 1 garlic clove – Pressed or minced
- 2 Tablespoon Fresh lime or Lemon
- 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp. Sugar
- 1/8 tsp. Cayenne, or to taste
- 1/3 Cup Water
Directions: Heat until just simmering to meld flavors together..let cool to serve..it will thicken back up. If you prefer you can just put all ingredients into a blender and serve cold.
Ranch Dressing and Salsa
- 1/2 Cup Ranch Dressing
- 1/4 – 1/2 Cup Salsa to taste
Stir and eat! YUM!
Good Ol’ Ketchup and Mayo
- Ketchup and Mayo…any ratio amounts to taste
