This multipurpose sauce is great with a variety of dishes: Brush it on pork loin or salmon before baking, use it as a dipping sauce for dumplings or pot stickers, or try it as a salad dressing. Despite the high fat percentage (mostly because of the olive oil), the sauce is low in fat grams and overall calories.
