It has a specific name called “nước mắm chua ngọt”. I’m beginning to see many people get confused as some refers it to as “nước chấm” which just literally means a general term for any dipping sauce. There are so many Vietnamese dipping sauces; therefore, it’s important to know the specific name of the sauce a person is looking for.
I will be using this Vietnamese sweet and sour sauce as part of my cooking ingredient in future posts. Here is the formula to mix this sauce. My “1 part” is a cup. You can use a gallon size container to mix the sauce as long you stick to the proportions indicated. Knowing this has helped me make the sauce with a consistent taste every time.
