Three Ingredient Sweet And Sour Sauce (Soy-Free)

I love recipes like these; minimal ingredients, easy preparation, and maximum flavor. That’s exactly what this three-ingredient sweet and sour sauce is all about. And best of all, there are no added sugars, soy, or other artificial ingredients found in the typical store bought version.

This recipe is a great starting point for additional variations. You could add some red pepper flakes for a spicier version, or add some fresh herbs to add some freshness. Please add your ideas and how you use sweet and sour sauce to the comments below!
