Friday night’s are date night in our house and it often involves Chinese food. When we go out for Chinese we always, always get potstickers. I’m very picky about my potstickers and their sauce. I can tell you which Chinese restaurants in Utah have good potstickers and which doesn’t. What can I say? I’m a potsticker snob. Just kidding! Is there even such a thing?! We love potstickers so much that we keep a bag of frozen potstickers in the freezer. They are from QVC and are delicious and easy to warm up.
The dipping sauce can make or break a great potsticker. I like a sauce that is a bit more tangy than sweet. It needs to have a bit of garlic, but it can’t overwhelm the rest of the flavors. Green onion can be good in a sauce, if kept to a minimum. This dipping sauce has a good blend of salt, sweet, garlic and ginger.
This dipping sauce requires no cooking and uses items found in most pantries. Makes life easy! This makes a lot of sauce. You could easily cut in half.
