Dipping sauce is common among a lot type of food, like junk foods, fried dishes, fresh vegetables, and grilled meat. This is to add flavour to your dishes. In cooking barbecue, most of the time we apply the sauce on the food, but with the dip is being dip directly to the sauce for a short time.


At parties, finger foods and appetizers usually have dipping sauce available on the side. Most of these dipping sauces are made from mayonnaise, ketchup, and cheese.


Maybe you were asking when this brilliant idea became popular among of us. Based on what I read, in the 50’s, people got tired of sitting down on one table and decided to watch television while eating. Since this modern style of being a couch potato makes them hungry, they decide to bring their own kitchen utensils in the living room while having a great time watching tv. But then they realized that it’s inconvenient to bring a lot of utensils, so they decided to replace it with finger foods. And these chips became a meal and got an idea of making it extraordinary by dipping finger foods. This is how a couch-potato lives his life while being hooked with watching television.
