rice wine vinegar
chili garlic sauce (such as Lee Kum Kee®)
I love this sauce with cold spring rolls, this and the spicy peanut sauce are the main reasons we make the spring rolls! Love it and you can use white or rice vinegar. Delish!
Sauce has a great flavor, but didn't thicken when I made it.
Very tasty; especially yummy with my egg rolls. I will definately make this sauce again.
i was looking for a recipe without ketchup or other tomato based sauce. this one was excellent. as did another reviewer i used white vinegar and sweet chili sauce only because thats what i had on hand. i wont be buying sweet and sour sauce again. this was easy and so much better!
Very similar to our restaurant here that we like!
Super simple and delicious. It really zazzed up my frozen spring rolls for dinner!
This sauce is great and my husband loved it! Good with spring rolls. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt and red Tabasco pepper sauce instead of chili garlic sauce.
This is easy and delicious! Just the right balance of sweet, salty and spicy. Served with homemade veggie spring rolls. I could just eat it by the spoonful though! I added a tiny bit of cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken. I imagine it would be delicious on tofu, chicken, shrimp, pork, anything! Thank you!
