Ingredients

  • 3/4

    c apple cider vinegar, preferably unfiltered but the regular is fine

  • 1/4

    c plain (not seasoned) rice vinegar

  • 6

    Tbl Dijon mustard

  • 4

    tsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    tsp pepper sauce like Cholula--my preference--or Tabasco

  • 1/2

    c vegetable oil

  • S&P to taste

  • Mix well, heat briefly, then add:

  • 1-3

    Tbl honey and

  • 1

    Tbl sugar

  • water

Directions

The honey and sugar are really "to taste" additions. I put a bit less in first and then taste and tweak accordingly. For this sauce I am looking for sweet and tart to be equal. It depends somewhat on the fruitiness and acidity of the vinegars. Look to balance the acidity a bit and then add water, about 1/4 c at a time, till the acidity is softened. Adjust salt. I'm looking for just enough of sweetness to round out the sauce.
