Vinegar Dipping Sauce

Most people don't have a need for a vinegar dipping sauce recipe but for those who may use some help or wants to compare recipes, here's one for reference.

I use a real tangy vinegar, Datu Puti, with red onion, chopped garlic pieces, soy sauce for color, pinch of salt and little sugar, sliced green onion -- and chili for a little spicy kick.

Red, instead of regular yellow onion gives a more depth in taste. I also use a little sugar to balance the tangy vinegar and salty soy sauce.


  • Red Onion
  • Green Onion(optional)


  • White Vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Soy Sauce
  • Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Chili pepper or chili flakes(optional)


  • 1 1/2 cup White Vinegar
  • 1 medium Red Onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoons Kosher or table Salt (or 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt)
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Green Onion(optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes or chili pepper(optional)

1   Mix all the ingredients together.

 Set aside until ready to use.

 Serve with fried vegetable lumpia, ukoy or fried fishballs.


  • Red onion is just a personal preference, you could use yellow onions or even shallots, whichever is available.
  • Fresh Garlic tends to go rancid, so only add them to the dip that will be served within the day.
  • If you are not going to consume all the dip on the day you made it, replace the fresh garlic with powdered garlic.
