Peanut-Free Dipping Sauce

  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


This simple dipping sauce takes the dumplings up a notch. 


  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Red chili flakes, fresh ginger or garlic as you like


  1. Whisk ingredients, add chili pepper, ginger, and garlic to your taste. 


For sesame oil, I use Kadoya Sesame Oil. It’s hard to find a sesame oil without cross contamination warnings on the label.  Kayoda is made in Japan, one of their oldest and most established sesame oil companies. All they do is sesame oil. Is a guarantee of no cross-contamination? No, it’s Japan, so they don’t have to disclose like in the US. But given their business model, and reputation for extreme cleanliness, I’ve felt safe giving them a try. 

For soy sauce, I use San-J Tamari. They have a gluten-free version I started using when my youngest was still allergic to wheat. He eats wheat now, but I’ve stuck with the brand. It’s a traditional brewed tamari, and much more complex in flavor than the La Choy Soy Sauce I had as a kid.
