3 Easy wing dip recipes to make at home for your next time having wings.
Grilled wings: Creamy artichoke and garlic dip Drain a 6oz jar of marinated artichokes (save the juice for an easy salad vinaigrette!). In the bowl of a food processor, add the artichokes, 2 cloves of garlic (one more if you’re sassy), and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise. Pulse 3 or 4 times before blending on low until smooth. If there’s any left after you’ve had your wings, use it as a sandwich spread.
Buffalo wings: Apricot chili jam In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons of apricot jam with 1 tablespoon water and ½ teaspoon red chili flakes. If you don’t have apricot jam, other stone fruit like plums, cherry, and peach will work as well as orange marmalade. I don’t recommend strawberry or grape for this dipping sauce.
Important question: should you use jam or jelly? Fruit bits are strained from jelly so it’s just the juice, sugar, and pectin, while jams have pieces of the whole fruit. It’s kind of like if you prefer pulp in your OJ. If that’s not your thing, it’s perfectly fine to use jelly. Regular fried wings: Sawsawan, a Filipino garlic dip In a clean jar, mix 1 cup white vinegar with ½ teaspoon crushed black peppercorns, a bay leaf, 2 cloves sliced garlic, and 1 or 2 sliced Thai chili peppers. If you can’t find Thai bird chilis, sub in 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
Let the mixture marinate at room temperature for up to 2 hours and then store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
The best part?
You can keep adding vinegar and aromatics to keep it steeping. Make sure all the herbs stay submerged and you’ll be good to go. Besides fried chicken, Sawsawan is perfect with any sort of fish and french fries.
