The perfect chicken wing dipping sauce
Replace your ranch dip with this tasty indian inspired condiment! A mix of cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, and cream make this a great dipping sauce for chicken wings. This quick and easy dip is a variation of a condiment commonly found at Indian Restaurants known as raita. It pairs well with pakora, wraps, or anything you may want to dip in ranch dressing.
Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce
This is a flavorful dipping sauce that pairs well with meats, veggies, sandwiches, and even salads as a dressing. A variation of this sauce is available at most Indian or Middle Eastern restaurants, which is where the flavors might take you back to. It has always been a childhood favorite of mine with chicken wings, lamb chops, pakora, and kebabs. Now I am sharing the easy sauce recipe with you.
Goes well with EVERYTHING!

Can I make a vegan dipping sauce?
Yes! My favorite vegan alternative for mayonnaise is Follow Your Heart Soy Free Mayonnaise. It tastes great with this recipe and practically anything else. Be sure to purchase the right kind, since the other variations do not seem to taste the same.
If you are okay with eating dairy, then it tastes best with sour cream!
What can I serve with Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce?
