Chili and Lime Dipping Sauce

Total Time

Great to serve with spring rolls, or any other Asian style finger food. This can be kept in the fridge overnight, but be aware that the chili will increase in heat, so if you want to make it in advance and don't want it too hot, could be better to add the chili before serving.


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, stirring to combine.
  2. Serve with spring rolls, dim sums, won-tons or any other finger food.

Great dipping sauce! I used a green chili, as it's all I had on hand, and I served this with some Thai crab cakes. Very yummy! Thanks Sarah!

I wanted to make this to go with some lumpia, but I didn't have all the ingredients for the lumpia, so I made this anyway. The ginger didn't stand out very much to me, but the lime and soy sauce were a great combo. I think this would also be great brushed on some chicken breasts while grilling, or maybe even on grilled steak. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4

The lime really takes the saltiness out of the soy sauce and makes this absolutely delightful. It worked well as a dipping sauce for potstickers as well as a topping for my steamed chicken & veggies. Simple yet tasty. Made for ZWT 2008.
