We had friends coming to dinner and we were celebrating their youngest son’s recent birthday. His dinner request was an Asian smorgasbord and something chocolate for dessert.

I adapted the recipe a bit to work with what I had on hand and they turned out terrific. I loved the combination of flavors, colors, and textures in this recipe and that it is so easy to make.

Combine the mayonnaise with the sriracha sauce in a small bowl and mix until well combined; set aside.

Combine the soy sauce, sugar, minced garlic, and sesame oil in a small bowl and whisk until well combined; set aside.

  1. I really like the wide variety of meals you provide for your family. Your kids have certainly learned to enjoy more than tater tots and chicken nuggets.
