Hasty Dipping Sauce - magic in minutes!

Dear hot-headed, spicy reader,

I accidentally came up with this sauce the other night when I was making some onions rings to go with dinner.  The sauce is exquisitely perfect and just punchy enough for kicking up fried onions or vegetables, french fries, and right now the current household favorite is crispy-hot tender-warm Indian Fry Bread with this sauce (and a pool of extra hot sauce alongside it!).  Mr H proclaimed he could eat that every night and never get tired of it - and so we did, until I ran out of flour!

Hasty Dipping Sauce
This condiment makes an excellent dip for onion rings or fried breads.  Spread it on sandwiches to upgrade an everyday meal to a well-flavored, satisfying treat, or serve alongside sizzling bratwursts and burgers to impress your barbecue guests!  If possible, use an olive-oil based or homemade mayonnaise.  Use any punchy Cajun seasoning; I used Penzeys Spices Cajun Seasoning.  The cooling effect of the dill contrasts splendidly with the fiery hints of Cajun.  Makes approximately one cup.  

1 cup mayonnaise
1 generous teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon dried dill weed, or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill seed (I use both)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (for an accelerated kick, use two teaspoons)

Blend all ingredients together well.  Transfer to a container with a lid and keep refrigerated. 
Variation:  As it is, the spread is thick but still thin enough to use as a dip.  If you want it thinner, add buttermilk one teaspoon at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.  

Pottering about in the kitchen,

Mrs H
