Clockwise, from top left:

Cilantro-lime mayonnaise: One of my favorite restaurants (Brasa in St. Paul) serves a tangy, creamy sauce with their yucca fries. I was thrilled when I discovered the chef posted the recipe online! (Reduce the amount of water just a bit to make this sauce thicker and better suited for dipping.)

Bacon mayonnaise: Try this dipping sauce on your cheat day. Simply mix some bacon bits (purchased off off the grocery store salad bar to save money) with some mayonnaise.

Peanut sauce: Make a basic peanut sauce by blending 1/3 cup of chunky peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of sriracha sauce, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, and some chicken broth or water to thin it out.

Sriracha-mayonnaise: I use this sauce on everything – not just French fries. Mix desired amount of sriracha sauce with mayonnaise, depending on how spicy you like it. Add a pinch of sugar, if desired.

Spicy ketchup: Adding sriracha sauce to ketchup totally changes the flavor. The heat level is pretty intense, so start by adding a few drops of sriracha and go from there.

Curry mayonnaise: Eating fries with this dip makes me feel like I’m on vacation in India, sampling some exotic street food. Mix curry powder with mayonnaise and add a pinch of sugar to sweeten it up.

Curry-honey glaze: If you like a little sweet with your salty, try this dip: Mix a teaspoon of curry powder with 1/4 cup of honey.
