Sweet and Spicy Eggroll Dipping Sauce

I love Asian food.  I try to cook it at least once a week.  Occasionally we’ll order eggrolls or wontons to eat with our meal but more often then not I’ll buy some frozen eggrolls and heat them up with our dinner.  The ones we buy are pretty good and they really crisp up in the oven.

The only problem with the ones I buy is that there is no dipping sauce including in the box.  I usually stock up on sauce when we get take out but at least once a month we go without any dipping sauce.  When I saw this sweet and spicy dipping sauce on Sarah’s blog I was thrilled because I almost always have these ingredients in my pantry.

The sauce is perfect for eggrolls.  It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and tastes great with Asian food.  It’s also easy to whip up on the fly whenever I discover I’m out of sauce.

Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce  (slightly adapted from A Taste of Home Cooking)
2 T. rice wine vinegar
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 T. Thai chili sauce
1/2 t. Sriracha sauce

1.  Combine the vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan.  Heat for 5 minutes on low.

2.  Add in the salt, pepper, Thai chili sauce, and Sriracha and heat for 1 more minute.  Remove from heat and serve with eggrolls.




  1. I am looking forward to learning new ways to cook veggies this summer to give them new life! I love using the grill, and so that will be one way. I am diabetic, so as much of my food as possible is cooked fairly carb-less. (Is that a word?) It can be challenging sometimes to find these recipes!

  2. I am looking forward to grilling out! We always have a big Pig Pickin’ with all of our friends and family! Complete with a whole pig, all the sides and desserts! I can’t wait!

  3. Anything grilled!! I love being able to grill all my food in the summer!
    This dipping sauce looks absolutely delicious and your pictures are amazing!
