🔪 How to make bang bang sauce

Full recipe with detailed steps in the recipe card at the end of this post.

The base of the sauce is mayonnaise. We’re using about 120ml (1/2 a cup) – this will serve 6 people.
Then we’re basically flavouring the mayonnaise with the addition of 2 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce (use your favourite brand), 1 tbsp of sriracha (you can use hot sauce – such as Franks or Tabasco if you prefer) and 1 tsp of honey, for a slight touch of sweetness.

Mix it all together, then serve.
