Last night I made this to serve with chicken pot stickers. Since I also made Green Thai Curry, I left out the hot sauce so I didn't have too many hot things on one menu. I also used Hellman's mayo. The sauce is fabulous. People were practically licking it out of the bowls.

This dip tasted terrible, I made it twice in a row and checked the freshness of my ingredients (everything was fresh). I asked others to try it and we all agreed that there was a lingering vile taste. I tried to fix it by adding garlic, more ginger and sour cream... don't waste your time on this recipe. I don't know how it got rated so high!

This was a hit at work with veggies!

Thought this was a really tasty dip with fresh veggies. Next time I might try half mayo and half sour cream. Yum!

This was fantastic! It's not one to try if you don't like ginger though. I didn't have the sauce so I substituted white pepper instead.

This was a nice dipping sauce for chicken fingers and carrot and celery sticks. You'll have to adjust the hot sauce to your taste, I added more to give it a little zing. It has just a hint of Asian flavor from the soy sauce. It's sort of a multi-purpose dip that would go with many things. Now that I've made it and tasted it, I could see it as a dip for fried shrimp, but not served as a dip for boiled shrimp.

Big hit at the party on Saturday. Really did taste great with shrimp and veggies. I didn't have a couple of the ingredients, so I had to improvise, but it was fabulous. Everyone wants the recipe.

This is my all-time favorite dip for fresh veggies! It's particularly delicious with carrots. I have to say though that I've never had it or made it with any kind of hot sauce, so you could leave that item out and would still taste wonderful!
