We are die-hard ketchup fans as far as French fries go, but periodically I like to experiment a bit. This mayonnaise, mustard, garlic and vinegar sauce was a hit with everyone here. I usually serve French fries with burgers and this makes a nice spread on your burger as well. Oh, and here are some guidelines for frying French fries.
Sherry vinegar is expensive but it is really really good! It has become one of my splurges. And when I say “expensive” I don’t mean as expensive as eating out, for example. So it’s all relative. If you have a few extra bucks in your grocery budget one week try some. It makes awesome salad dressing as well, if you just follow a basic vinaigrette recipe like this one.
French Fry Dipping Sauce
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 tsp balsamic or sherry vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 3 Tbs mayonnaise
- Stir the vinegar and garlic together and let sit for 5-10 minute to marinate
- Mix in the mayonnaise and mustard.
If you like garlic, feel free to add more!
