*Chef’s tips*

  1. If apple cider vinegar is not your thing or you can’t simply find it in your kitchen, that’s okay. You can also use rice vinegar or white wine. Pick your favorite vinegar, keeping in mind that it should be very mild.
  2. Is your sauce missing a citrus kick? Squeeze half a small lemon. Add the juice to the bowl in addition to the vinegar, and whisk!
  3. Maybe your sauce lacks some sharpness or heat? In that case, add 1 tsp garlic powder and stir again.
