Vietnamese Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham)

Spiker’s Chile Lime shrub adds depth and zing to this classic dipping sauce which goes great with spring rolls, grilled shrimp, on a salad, or over cold noodles! For subtle variations, include a splash of Spiker’s Ginger Bite or Pineapple Basil shrub to the mix.
