What is a Sauce?
See National Sauce Month for a list of popular sauces.
In cooking, a sauce is liquid or sometimes semi-solid food served on or used in preparing other foods. Sauces are not consumed by themselves; they add flavor, moisture, and visual appeal to another dish. Sauce is a French word taken from the Latin salsus, meaning salted. Sauces need a liquid component, but some sauces (for example, salsa or chutney) may contain more solid elements than liquid.

Sauces may cooked sauces, such as Butter sauces or Béchamel sauce, which are generally made just before serving.

Lime Pepper dipping sauce is so easy to make.
Just add 1 tablespoon of lime pepper to:

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Here's a tip for you: Try this as a basting sauce on the grill too!
We do it all the time. You can adjust how thick or thin you want it by how much chicken stock you use. We like it best on chicken and fish.
Note: Lemon Pepper is just as good as Lime Pepper.

You must cover and refrigerate.
