Do you know about sriracha sauce?

It's my new favorite.  There's some interpersonal debate on pronunciation (sree-rah-cha or suh-rah-chee?) but it doesn't matter.

I have been adding it to things that I typically add mayonnaise to - potato salad, cole slaw, and chicken salad - with remarkable effects.

It's just the tiniest bit spicy, but the zing doesn't present itself at the beginning of the bite.  It's more of a post-taste.  I've been experimenting with about 1-2 tablespoons of the stuff to 1/2-3/4 cup of mayonnaise.

Do you use the stuff?  What do you use it on or in?


  1. Oh my gosh! We've been putting it on everything lately. Thanks to your influence, using it as a topping for scrambled eggs (or any other kind of eggs) has been glorious. Last night, its addition saved a relatively unpleasant eggplant disaster and made it into a yummy side dish. That stuff is amazing!

  2. I wouldn't have guessed it'd go with eggplant. I'll have to try it :)

  3. Nice! I'll have to try this out!!
