Simple Tangy Honey Garlic Dipping Sauce and Marinade (Paleo, AIP)
In my mind, there are never enough condiments! Sauces just make everything a little juicier and a little more fun. This tangy AIP dipping sauce is very easy to make and works well for so many things! It only requires 5 ingredients and a couple minutes of your time. It’s Paleo, AIP, Gluten-Free, and can be made vegan by swapping out the honey for maple syrup.
This sauce works great for dipping chicken, beef, pork, and fish. Also, delicious drizzled over grilled or steamed vegetables. Aside from dipping, it also makes a great marinade- just soak your meat in it for an hour or up to 24 hours, then grill or bake it.
A really nice thing about it is that it’s made with ingredients that last a long time so you can make a decently large batch of this and keep it in the.

AIP Sauce Ingredients
- Coconut Aminos- Coconut aminos are used as a soy sauce substitute but they're a little different than soy sauce. It’s sweet and well rounded and works great in so many recipes. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it! You can find it in the Asian section of most grocery stores- strangely my Kroger started putting it in the same aisle as the honey and nut butters. I have no idea why.
- Apple Cider Vinegar- Apple cider vinegar add a little bit a tang which is essential in most sauces and marinades.
- Honey- I really like honey in this sauce but you can sub in maple syrup and it would be quite good too (and vegan).
- Garlic Powder- Another fairly important ingredient when it comes to sauces- especially sauces made for meats
- Ginger Powder- I use just a tiny amount of ginger in this sauce but it’s just enough to give it a little bit of spice.
Using This Sauce as a Marinade
This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of sauce. If you're using this recipe as a marinade, this 1/2 cup of sauce will be enough for about 1 pound of meat.
Add the meat to a glass dish or zip lock bag with the marinade and allow it to soak for at least an hour (up to 24 hrs). If the marinade doesn't completely cover the meat, turn it over occasionally.
This sauce will stay fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 4-5 days, likely longer.
