Dipping Sauce 2: Sweet and Sour Cucumber Sauce (Video)


     This dipping sauce has such a magical effect on my son Adriano, it gives him a feeling of happiness which is contagious. He loves it so much to the point he can’t resist but to drink the leftovers. The sauce makes a fantastic change from the usual sweet chili sauce and marries so well with fish cakes and spring rolls. The balance of the sweet, the sour and the heat from the chili leaves a refreshing explosion of flavors on the palate. It is so easy to make and sits in your fridge for weeks.
