Ingredients for Dumpling Dipping Sauce:
Soy Sauce- A cooking staple in Japanese and Chinese cultures. Soy Sauce brings in a salty and umami flavor. Kikkoman is a really tasty brand of soy sauce.
Rice Vinegar- Another staple in Asian cultures made from fermented rice. Rice Vinegar is a mild version of vinegar that offers an acidity to the sauce.
Grated Ginger-A root with several health benefits. Ginger in raw form has a spicy, peppery taste, with almost a bit of sweetness. It's delicious and adds a little kick to this sauce.
Green Onion- For subtle flavor and crunch. Plus, it dresses the sauce up a bit.

How to Make Gyoza Dipping Sauce:
Step 1: Remove the skin from the fresh ginger using a knife or a spoon. Grate the ginger on the smallest side of the grater or with a microplane zester. Slice the green onion into thin strips.
Step 2: Into a bowl, add the soy sauce, grated ginger and rice vinegar and whisk to combine.
Step 3: Top with green onions.
Step 4: Serve with potstickers (gyoza), dumplings, wontons, and more! Enjoy.
Expert Tips for Potsticker Sauce:
- To grate ginger, you can cut off the skin of the ginger with a knife before grating. To be more resourceful and waste less, use a spoon to scrape off the outside of the ginger skin.
- While it's not crucial to the dish, I like to cut the green onions on an angle, or a bias for looks. Instead of having your knife perpendicular to the green onion to cut, slice it at a 45 degree angle.
Typical gyoza sauce includes a combination of soy sauce and rice vinegar. I like to add flavor and crunch by adding in green onion and fresh ginger.
If you have extra sauce, seal in a container and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Serve gyoza sauce on gyoza (potstickers), dumplings, wontons, or on rice or stir fry recipes.
