Favorite sauces?


Recommended Posts

Alright all, I'm looking for sauces: any and all kinds of sauces! Stuff to go over meatballs, veggies wether raw or cooked, burgers, grilled stuff, any cuisine type, any riffs on common ones (I substitute in a few Tbl of an infused olive oil such as carmelized garlic, or peppered bacon when I'm making mayo- so so good!)... You get the idea.

I've got my cook books open to Well Fed's sunshine sauce and housin sauce recipes, I'm ready to roll!

Not really a sauce, but I found a lemon-infused olive oil at the grocery store and basically put it on everything until I ran out. It just brightened the flavor of everything -- I put it on all kinds of cooked veggies, some chicken that got a little dry, baked sweet potatoes, hard boiled eggs, raw veggies. I really need to remember to pick up another bottle.


I like the Moroccan Dipping Sauce that's at the bottom of this chicken recipe too.

I added cilantro, a tsp of tomato paste and a tiny can of pickled jalapeños (ingredients were peppers, vinegar, and salt) to a batch of homemade mayo and whirred with the immersion blender to make a spicy southwestern type dressing. Very nice on burgers.

This is my favorite thread so far, thank you for this!!! I have mostly been just mashing up avocado to add to things as a "sauce" but it's not quite right, I am going to try all of these!!!
