I’m always on the lookout for a good sauce for dippin’. Ya know, dippin’ chicken tenders… or fries… or onion rings… or corn dogs… or shrimp! Something with some kick. Like this Delta dippin’ sauce.
This sauce is nice and creamy smooth. Not too thick so you don’t get a big gloppy mess on whatever you’re dippin’. It’s a little thin for burgers, but so tasty, so if you want to make a batch for burgers (and you will want to), leave out some if not all of the vegetable oil.
This sauce is a copycat of a sauce by the same name that was available at Popeye’s, but it was discontinued back in 2011 (it was a regional thing). I wouldn’t have taken it off the menu, that’s for sure!
I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
Also try my mango basil dipping sauce.
