Not everyone likes mayonnaise but even haters can't deny that it makes the best dipping sauces. From common sauces like tartar sauce to more intricate recipes like the remoulade sauce and avocado aioli, the list is one that seems never-ending. But, here are 9 that we have specially curated for you to try at home now!

1. Remoulade Sauce


A visit to Louisiana would be incomplete if you don't have remoulade alongside po boy sandwiches and crab cakes. All remoulades have a base of either oil or mayonnaise, but other signature ingredients include mustard, garlic, paprika and Cajun seasonings.

2. Caramelized Onion Dip

This onion dip combines the sweetness of caramelized onions with a creamy base of Mayonnaise and sour cream to make a flavorful dip. The sauce is traditionally paired with bread, crackers or potato chips.

3. Buttermilk Ranch Dressing


This recipe is considered the base for ranch dressing. The base is just buttermilk and mayonnaise and every other ingredient solely depends on personal preference. Some common additions include mustard, salt and pepper, a little paprika, herbs like chives, onion greens, parsley, and/or dill.

4. Avocado Aioli

Avocado is known for its creaminess but pair it with mayonnaise and you'll have the perfect sauce for roasted potato fries! Add chopped basil and pepper flakes for a spicy kick.

5. Mock Hollandaise Sauce


The sauce is a blend of mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and fresh dill. It makes the perfect English breakfast when served alongside muffins, sausage, and oached eggs.

6. Srirachannaise Sauce

Like the name indicates, the Srirachannaise is a mixture of Sriracha sauce and mayonnaise. The special sauce is best enjoyed with salted fries.

7. Tartar Sauce


This homemade tartar sauce requires mayonnaise, dill pickles, capers, lemon juice and a few other ingredients. Serve with fish or crab cakes for a filling meal.

8. Fry Sauce

Stop eating your burgers and french fries the ordinary way, serve them with this fry sauce that is known for its slight sweetness, creamy consistency and a hint of tang from vinegar. But be careful, the flavorful dip is addictive and may have you reaching out for one too many burgers.

9. Bang Up Blue Cheese Dressing


The perfect blue cheese dressing has body but isn't unnecessarily heavy. The decadent recipe requires a long list of calorie-laden ingredients like mayonnaise and sour cream but you will definitely enjoy the spicy kick that's added by freshly ground black pepper and a dash of Cayenne-based hot sauce.
