Fantastic dipping sauce! We were searching for a Sweet/Hot Thai dipping sauce to serve with an Asian appetizer sampler we had. At the grocery, they were sampling a store-bought sauce they sold there. I told my husband I thought we could do better than that, and thanks to my friends at Recipezaar, we did!! I can always count on someone here to come up with the best. The perfect ratio of sweet to hot. I will be using this recipe often. Thank you, Juenessa!
