7 easy dipping sauces - Dash of Mandi

I am a sucker for a good dipping sauce. They can make finger food just that much better. My husband is probably the one who got me super into making dipping sauces. He wants dipping sauce with everything. I don’t think he’d ever eat chips or pretzels without them. I mean, can’t really blame him. Chips and dip are an epic combo.

Ever since we got an air fryer, I make fries all of the time. We love using Japanese sweet potatoes. I’ve been creating quite a bit of dipping sauces to serve with the fries. So, I figured it was about time to share them!

I stored mine in cute little mason jars that came with stickers to label them!

Comeback Sauce

What to dip in it: fries, my everything chicken fingers, chicken nuggets, fried pickles, onion rings, tater tots, fried shrimp.

Thai Peanut

What to dip in it: spring rolls, veggies (so good with carrots), chicken satay, and wontons. Or use it as a spread with my Thai chicken wraps. You could also use cashew butter instead of peanut butter and make it Thai cashew sauce!
