Potsticker Sauce Recipe (5 Minute Recipe)

Who doesn’t love potstickers? For those that don’t know what they are all about, essentially they are a type of dumpling.

Expert Tips & FAQ:
How long will this potsticker sauce last? This sauce will last up to 1 week in a tightly sealed container in the fridge.
What is the difference between a potsticker and a dumpling? These names can be used interchangeably on menus which makes it hella confusing. Potstickers are slightly different from dumplings as they are crispy on the outside based on how they are cooked, however, both dumplings and potstickers are made with doughs on the outside and similar fillings.
What else can I use this sauce on? Get creative. You can drizzle it on a healthy bowl, add it to salads, use as a dipping sauce for other delicious dumpling combinations, or drink it. Okay, kidding on the last one 😉
