  • MayonnaiseBang bang sauce is similar to an aioli; so we’re going to use mayo as the base of our recipe. You can use whatever kind you prefer – regular, olive-oil mayonnaise, or vegan mayo.
  • Sweet Chili Sauce – The hint of sweetness comes from Thai sweet chili sauce! I normally find a jar in the Asian or International aisle of the grocery store.
  • Sriracha – To balance everything together, a hint of sriracha provides the perfect amount of heat.
