I travel constantly for work, which hasn't been great for my waistline. After eating in all of the best restaurants in the world for a few years, I realized that I had gained around 30 pounds. Fortunately, I was able to work with a health coach who taught me some valuable skills for my way of life. She taught me how to recognize unhealthy foods and swap them out for better options--even in foreign hotels. The results were incredible. I was able to lose weight while enjoying my travel adventures. My blog is for anyone out there who wants to enjoy healthier food on the go.
French fries are the ultimate all-American food, but if you want your customers to enjoy yours more than those at neighboring restaurants, you're going to have to do something to make them stand out. Why not serve them with a cup of a special, house-made dipping sauce? Here are three dipping sauce recipes you can make ahead in large batches, and then send out in individual cups with your French fries.
Creamy Caesar Dip
This garlicky dip will remind you of the dressing on a Caesar salad, but with a thicker consistency.
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth and an even consistency. Transfer the mixture to a refrigerator-safe glass jar, and keep it in the fridge until needed. The dressing should stay fresh and tasty for up to 2 weeks.
Sweet and Sour Dip
People who love vinegar on their fries will go crazy for this light, yet flavorful dipping sauce. It has the perfect balance of sweet and sour flavors. Make sure you plan on making this one well in advance of when you need it, since it has to be cooked on the stove.
Combine all of the ingredients except for the cornstarch and water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Whisk the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl, and add it to the simmering sauce, stirring constantly. Return the mixture to a simmer, and simmer for 5 minutes. The sauce should thicken. Remove it from the heat, and let it cool to room temperature before transferring to a glass jar for storage in the fridge. The dip should keep for up to 1 month.
Honey Mustard Dip
Homemade honey mustard is so much better than the kind that comes in the bottle. Plus, this recipe comes together in a snap.
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Transfer to a glass jar for storage in the refrigerator. The mustard will taste better after sitting for a day or so, and it should stay fresh for up to a month.Share
