Yum Yum Sauce

To make a restaurant-quality dipping or drizzling sauce, all you need are a few simple ingredients that you might already have in your own kitchen. This recipe by Real Housemoms takes you step-by-step to whip up a light-pink Yum Yum Sauce for whatever entrée you have in mind. The creaminess starts with a base of mayonnaise, while onion and garlic powders add bold flavor. The red comes from tomato, and while you can always use ketchup in a pinch, you can omit that added sugar by opting for tomato paste. If you prefer a sweeter sauce, you can still add sugar to taste. You can also raise the heat with a little paprika, and for a particularly spicy mix, consider your favorite hot sauce or even cayenne powder. Once all the ingredients are combined with a little water, let it all chill in the fridge for a few hours.

Fried Rice

Now that you’ve prepared your Yum Yum Sauce, you can complement it with its perfect pairing – fried rice. This hibachi-inspired recipe by Kitchen Swagger yields a wonderfully flexible flavor that you can experiment with however you like. In addition to long-grain rice, you’ll need an egg, onion, butter, soy sauce, peas, and carrots, plus your preferred cooking oil. It all cooks together in one pan, and a wok would be perfect for stirring the rice and retaining heat. As you cook, feel free to branch out and incorporate other flavors like leek or mushrooms.
