McDonald's Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce
My McDonald's Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce recipe below copies the sauce you get with your order of McNuggets at the world's largest hamburger outlet. Now, instead of shoving a fistful of the little green packs into your backpack, you can make up a batch of your own McDonald's sweet and sour sauce to use as a dip for store bought nuggets, chicken fingers, fried shrimp, and tempura. It's a simple recipe that requires a food processor or a blender, and the sauce will keep well for some time in the fridge.
