We also use this same sauce by adding a few more ingredients such as a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, freshly crushed roasted unsalted peanuts and hot chili peppers to dip our gỏi cuốn or fresh spring rolls. This sauce keeps up to a month if tightly sealed in the refrigerator. Always use a clean spoon every time you remove the sauce to prevent contamination inside the jar.
