Burger King Zesty Sauce is one of Burger King’s most popular sauce recipes, if you have never tried it has the perfect combination of heat and acid to take onion rings to a whole new level.
Zesty onion ring dipping sauce is great for onion rings, but this sauce would also go well on a hamburger, a roast beef sandwich, or anything fried. This sauce has just the right amount of acid and heat to cut through anything deep-fried.
What’s in Burger King Zesty Dipping Sauce
If you have tasted this sauce before you will notice that there are notes of horseradish, lemon, and something more.
I have read a few recipes online, and to be honest, I think most are very close to each other. They all contain mayonnaise, paprika, horseradish, lemon, some have mustard, but what I think is missing is a bit of umami. So to address this I like to add a drop or two of soy sauce. That extra drop of soy sauce balances the sauce.
How long does this sauce last in my refrigerator?
This homemade dipping sauce lasts for about a week in your refrigerator. So you can make this sauce a day or two ahead of time. I actually think the sauce tastes better a few hours after you make it because the ingredients get to marry and meld together.
Onion ring dipping sauce is easy to make!
Do you have a bowl? Go raid your refrigerator and your spice cabinet, and in about 5 minutes you will make a sauce everyone will love. Simply give these ingredients a quick stir, cover the bowl, and wait at least 30 minutes and you will be known as the king of sauces!
