Dips

A dip or dipping sauce is a common condiment for many types of food. Dips are used to add flavour or texture to a food, such as pita bread, dumplings, crackers, cut-up raw vegetables, seafood, cubed pieces of meat and cheese, potato chips, tortilla chips, and falafel.

Unlike other sauces, instead of applying the sauce to the food, the food is typically put, dipped, or added into the dipping sauce (hence the name).

Dips are commonly used for finger foods, appetisers, and other easily held foods. Thick dips based on sour cream, crème fraiche, milk, yogurt, mayonnaise, soft cheese, or beans are a staple of hors d’oeuvres and are thinner than spreads which can be thinned to make dips. It has been suggested that a dip is defined based on its ability to “maintain contact with its transport mechanism over three feet of white carpet”.

Dip is a very widespread food. Forms of dip are eaten all over the world.

Whip this up instead of your basic aioli the next time you’re looking to dress up your potato wedges or fried appetisers. It’s a terrific french fries dipping sauce, and it’s a perfect spicy condiment for crab cakes, fried shrimp, calamari, and hamburgers, just to name a few.
