Unique Dipping Sauce Ideas for Dumplings

Ginger and Vinegar 

Ginger and vinegar sauce is a unique and flavorful dipping option for dumplings. The sourness of the vinegar mixed with the sharp zing of the ginger creates a full-bodied sauce that adds to the dumpling experience. Another great part of ginger and vinegar dipping sauce is that it is very easy to make!

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 3 tablespoons of black rice vinegar 
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger- minced, grated, or julienned
  • A dash of dill to add freshness
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon of honey. If the sauce is too sour or overwhelming, adding some honey can help balance the sauce out.

Garlic and Vinegar

Similar to the ginger vinegar sauce, this garlic vinegar sauce is extremely flavorful and robust. This delicious smelling and tasting sauce is not just used for dipping dumplings but can also be used as salad dressing and more! When preparing this sauce, you should cook the minced garlic in a little bit of oil before adding the other ingredients. Cooking the garlic beforehand helps cut the overpowering spicy taste of raw garlic.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 2 tablespoons of black rice vinegar 
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon of oil 
  • ½ teaspoon of soy sauce 
  • Dash of salt 
  • Dash of pepper 

Onion Sauce

Onion sauce is a very different tasting dipping sauce from the two discussed above. This dipping sauce is a perfect combination of sweet and savory making it a very unique dumpling dipping sauce.  

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 1 tablespoon of chopped spring onions
  • 1.5 tablespoons of oil 
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce 
  • ½ teaspoon of rice vinegar
  • Dash of sugar
