This South African Fast Food Chain Makes My Favorite Dipping Sauce
And you can buy it on Amazon.
If you ask us, a delicious dipping sauce is the perfect finishing touch to any meal. It doesn’t matter if you’re devouring juicy chicken cutlets, medium-rare steak or grilled vegetables: Sauces are a surefire way to give your meal a special kick without accidentally over-seasoning your dish. And when you find a really good sauce — you know, the kind that you want on everything— it’s certainly worth celebrating.
That’s exactly how I feel about Nando’s selection of marinades.
There’s a good chance you’ve at least heard of Nando’s. The South African fast food chain is known for its mouth-watering, Portuguese-style chicken dishes. Since launching in 1987, Nando’s has opened spots everywhere from the United Kingdom to Bangladesh — and, yes, even some cities in the United States.
While Nando’s chicken and sides dishes are seriously scrumptious, its array of PERi-PERi dipping sauces are the hero of every meal. Let’s face it: Hot sauces can be very hit or miss. Most of the time, they are either too hot to enjoy or barely pack a bunch. But with a variety of flavors like Lemon & Herb, Garlic, Medium, and Hot, there’s something for every spice level. Oh, and did I mention these sauces are gluten-free, vegetarian-friendly, and have no added MSGs?
Whether you’re already a huge fan of Nando’s sauces or interested in giving them a try, I have some news for you: They’re available on Amazon. Gone are the days when you had to order Nando’s every time you craved its savory sauces. Instead, you can add your marinade of choice to your cart and have it delivered straight to your doorstep. Mic drop.
Last summer, one of my friends and I were talking about (what else?) Nando’s and he mentioned he was able to find the sauces at the supermarket. While I’ve had some luck finding them at select grocery stores, having these sauces on Amazon is a total game-changer. Not only does it save me the time spent scouring the aisles, but I can also buy theses sauces in bulk without having them weigh down my grocery bags.
When it comes to choosing one of Nando’s marinades, there’s no bad choice. Most of the time, it just depends on how spicy you like your sauces. For me, Nando’s Garlic sauce is the perfect option. It adds a kick to my dishes without making me feel like my mouth is on fire, not to mention I really love garlic. I dab a little of this sauce on everything — and I mean everything: chicken breast, vegetables, cauliflower fried rice, you name it.
Can’t make up your mind? Don’t worry, Amazon also sells a variety pack of is four famous flavors. Now the only thing you need to decide is which sauce to use on your next meal!
