Mayonnaise: I’ve used vegan mayonnaise. But you can use regular mayonnaise instead.
Chilli powder/Cayenne: Just a little is enough to balance the sweet and tangy taste of sauce. Add more to spice up your sauce.
Vinegar: I've used distilled malt vinegar to enhance the flavour of the sauce. You could use fresh lemon juice instead.
In a bowl, put mayonnaise, dijon mustard, honey, chilli powder, vinegar.
Whisk until it is smooth and creamy.
