Salty, spicy and sour, this simple-to-make sauce enhances everything from pancakes to tofu dishes. For the freshest results, we suggest that you add the green onions (scallions) when you are ready to use the sauce. The green onions wilt and darken in color if left in the sauce for too long.


  • ¼ cup (65 ml) soy sauce, preferably low sodium
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar


In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, honey, water and sesame oil.

Add the red pepper flakes, Crushed Roasted Sesame Seeds and scallions. Mix until combined. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. It will keep for 1 week without the green onions and for 3 days once they’re added.
