Sriracha Lime Mayo is a truly gorgeous combination of flavours! Such an easy homemade dip to knock up that works with literally anything!

And that’s exactly the beauty of this recipe, it captures everything a homemade dip should be. Quick and easy, using minimal ingredients and tastes delicious! And involves mayo.. Cause mayo is life…

I can’t remember where I was when I first had sriracha mayo, but it was love at first bite. So smooth and creamy, yet nice and tangy. Ugh. So good.

From there I made it my mission to make a homemade version. Like how hard can it be? Just mayo and sriracha surely?

And yes, at it’s roots that’s exactly how you can make it. But as I was playing around with the recipe and I chucked in a dash of lime. And then some more. And then even more. Until half a lime was in the darn thing and let me tell you, adding lime to a sriracha mayo takes it to new heights. It’s official.

It just enhances that zingy taste and gives a pop to the dip.

So from just mayo and sriracha, things got a little more intense. All in all here’s the ingredient list for sriracha lime mayo:

  • Mayo (full fat)
  • Sriracha
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Coriander/Cilantro (optional)

It really is as simple as combining in a bowl and refrigerating until needed!

And by ‘bowl’ sometimes I mean a DIY bowl made from your lime, plonked in the centre of a Blooming Onion. Yup, that’s totally a thing.

Sriracha lime mayo is perfect to knock up when you’ve got people over. Quick, easy and no fuss.

But whatever you choose, there better be Baked Potato Wedges.

All in all sriracha, lime and mayo is a combo made in heaven. An easy homemade dip that’s just waiting to be dunked!
