Two Ingredient Joy by Cleo Coyle




A simple post with a delicious idea. Not new, of course. You may have tried it already. If not, I invite you to share my two ingredient joy.

The first ingredient is mayonnaise.

The second is...



Sriracha Chili Sauce! 



"OH NO," YOU MAY SAY.

"THAT'S TOO HOT FOR ME!

I thought so, too, until I controlled the heat in recipes like this one. Using mayonnaise (or yogurt), you can create the most delightful dipping sauces for boiled or fried shrimp, french fries, and raw veggies like cauliflower, carrots, and celery sticks. 

Use a small amount of the chili sauce for a wonderful smoky flavor. Increase the chili sauce for more heat. And that's it!

Well, almost.

You can always mix the pretty pink mayo with other ingredients to create something like my recent lunch below...


CLEO'S SPICY TUNA SALAD 

WITH RICE CRACKERS




Cleo's Spicy Tuna Salad

2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha chili sauce
1 can of tuna, drained (5 oz.)
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon dill relish


Directions: Mix mayo and sriracha sauce to create the spicy mayo. Combine with remaining ingredients. I eat it on rice crackers, but you may prefer it on bread or a roll. However you like it, may you...



Eat (and read) with joy!

  1. Looks like a good dipping recipe. I would need to make two different batches with my two constantly fighting over how much heat to use. Thanks

    1. That's the beauty of the 2 ingredients. You control the flavor from gentle smokiness to more spice and heat. For dipping shrimp or French fries or veggies, Marc and I will make two or even three dip choices (with just the 2 ingredients)--mild, medium, and spicy hot. Whatever your favorite, we hope you enjoy it!
