Asian Dip

I buy an Asian dip at one of my favorite food stores in Lake Forest, Foodstuffs. They don’t always have it in stock and there have been times when I can’t get it and then I really crave it.
It’s so delicious on salads or just to use for dipping with homemade chips.

I was determined to try to make it from scratch this week and what do you know…first try and the recipe is almost exact. Not too often first time’s a charm. Luck!

Bon Appetit!

½ cup low calorie mayonnaise

½ tsp soy sauce

1 fresh basil leaf – finely chopped

¼ tsp sesame oil

¼ tsp sesame seeds

¼ tsp rice wine vinegar

¼ tsp fresh ginger

¼ tsp sugar

¼ tsp dried mustard

Cayenne pepper – ¼ or ¾ tsp to taste and for color



Mix and refrigerate.
