Dipping Sauce for Vietnamese Spring Rolls (Sauce Only)

Total Time

I LOVE soft spring rolls. So healthy and refreshing. The recipe that I use faithfully (in my appetizer cookbook) has a sauce that is ok, but I never LOVED the sauce like I love the rolls. I think the rice wine vinegar is too prevelant. I stumbled across this sauce recipe in Cooking Light and think the addition of the sesame oil is going to balance the vinegar out beautifully. Can't wait to try it!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 12 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste with garlic
  • 12 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and wisk.
  2. Serve with soft spring/summer rolls!

I made this to serve as a second sauce option with Recipe #250215. This sauce has nice contrasts with tart, sweet, & spicy being highlights. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I totally recommend this! It's the perfect dipping sauce for Vietnamese Spring Rolls. And it is very easy to make.
