Sweet & Spicy Asian Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This simple sauce can be thrown together with items most people have in their pantries! Great for dipping potstickers, Spring rolls or Summer rolls. The Asian hot sauce in the ingredient list below can be subbed with Asian hot chili oil, if you prefer. I like to use Sriracha Hot Chile Sauce.

Great and easy recipe. I made as written and only used 1-1/2 Tbsp of the sugar. I was sorry I didn't have any green onion to throw in...I will make this again. Thank you for the recipe, it's a keeper.
