Deborah Harsha’s awesome sauce

What is better than Yum Yum Sauce? Better than the sauce from that famous chicken restaurant chain? In my house, it is called Awesome Sauce, simply because well….it is….AWESOME.

We like it on too many things to name, but to start I’ll suggest:  burgers, fries, chicken and even a rare piece of ahi tuna, which is really why I started making it in the first place.

Note: Follow the mixing directions, it is important.

Awesome Sauce Ingredients

3T white wine vinegar
1T soy sauce
1t sesame oil
3T sugar
1t minced garlic
1t fresh ginger finely chopped or similar amount of dry ginger powder
1t cayenne pepper (or less if you must, but I find it best to use the whole amount)
1/2 t black pepper
1C mayonnaise (full fat regular, no lite or diet)

Mix vinegar, soy, sesame oil, sugar, garlic, ginger, cayenne together very well.

Whisk in mayonnaise.
