This easy, creamy, sweet maple dipping sauce for sweet potato fries has great flavor from maple syrup and toasted pecans. It's the perfect dip for crispy sweet potato fries.
This sweet dipping sauce is made with maple syrup, finely chopped toasted pecans and mayonnaise. The combination of mayo and maple syrup may sound odd at first but it works surprisingly well. The sweetness of the syrup counteracts the slight tang of the mayonnaise and makes for a really delicious and creamy sauce.
Please be sure to use real (pure) maple syrup for this recipe, not any imitations. Real maple syrup has a deep and complex maple flavor that makes this sauce great.
