Sepo Sauce: Garlicky Goodness

two_options_sepo_12.18-3402 (1280x853)When I first heard about Sepo Sauce, I said, “What’s that?” Then I read the jar label with its fairy tale story and I still didn’t have a clue.

After tasting Sepo Sauce, now I know: it’s a tasty, tangy, garlicky, mayo-like condiment that works well as a dip, spread, or salad dressing.

Garlick lovers will enjoy Sepo Sauce.

Garlic lovers will enjoy Sepo Sauce.

Sepo Sauce was born when its creator, Chef Sharla, first learned she had food allergies—lots of food allergies. A foodie, she vowed to continue creating great tastes for herself and her guests and she came up with Sepo Sauce, a one-of-a kind, gourmet sauce/dip you can use with salads, sandwiches, appetizers and more.

Sharla’s Sepo Sauce comes in 12 ounce glass jars and looks like mustard. However, the texture is more like a thick

mayonnaise. In fact, the first ingredient of this gluten-free product is mayo. And it’s got plenty of calories just like mayonnaise too—150 calories in 2 Tablespoons.

Sepo Sauce can be used an a sandwich condiment too.

I tried Sepo Sauce as a condiment on a fried bacon and egg sandwich and found it satisfyingly delicious. It elevated my sandwich to a whole new level. I also tried it as a dip for veggies and the texture and the garlicky-horseradish flavor was just right. However, I did find that the garlic flavor lingered for some time.

If you want an easy, delicious sauce/dip/dressing and you love the flavor of garlic, you’ll like Sepo Sauce. Check out their website for some interesting recipes and suggestions for using Sepo Sauce. – Bobbie Hasselbring, RFT Editor

    Hello and thank you for the wonderful review. I just so happen to be traveling back up to my beloved Portland – tm15th -18th and I noticed you are the chocolate expert of the northwest. Please do tell !! I have only been back to Portland a handful of times and am out of the loop. Where MUST I go have a meal and some chocolate?

      Our pleasure, Sharla. We definitely enjoyed your SEPO Sauce.

      There are SO many great restaurants in Portland, OR, it’s difficult to choose. As for selecting one for a meal and chocolate, I’d separate the two and go to eat and then go elsewhere for dessert. Soooo, here are some suggestions: Aviary (French/Asian flare); Bamboo Sushi NW (most creative sushi ever, uber-fresh); Beast (James Beard Best NW Chef; plenty of charcuterie, duck, beef cheeks); Castagna (classic, NW fare); Le Pigeon (French-inspired; if you’re flush, go for the chef’s tasting menu); Nostrana (NW fare, wood-fired pizza); and, of course, the old and always wonderful stand-by Jake’s Crawfish (terrific fish; and they have a mean chocolate sack and a pretty good chocolate torte). For chocolate, some good shops include Cacao and Alma Chocolate (also check out Teresa Bergen’s article on small chocolate shops in PDX here on the site). Ken’s artisan bakery has some nice pastry items, but I’d opt for Pix Patisserie for really fine pastries. Or head over to super-popular Salt & Straw for one of their fabulous flavors of ice cream. Good luck and enjoy your visit back to PDX. — Bobbie, RFT Editor
