PREVIOUS: Spicy Plum Chutney NEXT: Spicy Meatloaf Sandwich

Ingredients (5)

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 drops toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)


Liven up your next sandwich with this Asian-inspired spread. Try slathering it on some seared tuna or combining it with roasted peppers and eggplant.

What to buy: Look for Sriracha hot sauce in the Asian section of your supermarket; we prefer the one made by Huy Fong Foods (with the rooster on the jar!).

Place the mayonnaise, hot sauce, lime juice, and sesame oil in a small, nonreactive bowl and stir to combine. Add the sesame seeds if desired.
