Five Best Ways to Use BBQ Sauce

Barbeque sauce, more popularly known as BBQ sauce, is used as a marinade, dip, condiment or topping. The sauce blends wonderfully well especially if you are barbequing meat. However, the sauce works not just as a dip or a sauce, but it can have numerous other uses too. Here are five best ways to use BBQ Sauce.

Salad Dressings

To complement salads of all kinds, nothing works better than BBQ sauce. You can experiment with different toppings and mix BBQ sauce with them. Feel free to add some black beans and tortillas in the mix too. BBQ sauce also adds a sweet and tangy flavour profile to your salads – in fact it works exceptionally well with potato salads. Whip up a spicy potato salad with jalapenos, cilantro and American Garden’s BBQ Hickory Sauce, which uses a sweet smoky flavour inspired by an authentic American recipe.


Use BBQ sauce directly as a dip for mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders and potato balls. Or you can use the leftover BBQ Sauce by mixing sour cream and Greek yoghurt, and your guests will love it. American Garden’s Original BBQ Sauce, BBQ Hickory and BBQ Honey sauce work equally well as dips.  

Sauce & Marinades

Mix up flavours and textures by experimenting with pairing. For instance, soy sauce paired with American Garden’s BBQ Honey Sauce gives you a tangy yet light taste, creating a perfect accompaniment to oriental cuisine like dim sums, noodles and jasmine rice. Lemon juice, vinegar and ketchup are other ingredients that can be mixed up with BBQ sauce to create interesting combinations. The lemon juice & BBQ sauce mixture makes a great meat marinade whereas the ketchup & BBQ sauce mix works exceptionally well in a cheeseburger.

Nachos and Quesadillas

Give Mexican food a wholesome American touch with just a splash of BBQ sauce. For instance, baked beans coated in American Garden’s BBQ Honey Sauce would work deliciously with the salsa and cheese sauce combo in a plate of loaded nachos. You could also elevate your quesadillas with a generous layer of American Garden’s BBQ Chili Sauce before adding in the meat and cheese. The result; a juicy, tangy and incredibly memorable quesadilla that will leave you licking your fingers and leave your guests asking for more!


Give your regular wraps a zing by adding BBQ sauce along with regular Mayo. Make a quick wrap with pita bread, topped with barbeque chicken, carrots and cabbage. Add  on some American Garden’s Garlic Mayonnaise and Original BBQ Sauce; and just like that, your yummy meal is fixed!

These were some of the best ways to use barbeque sauce; but feel free to experiment and come up with your own. Try American Garden’s range of BBQ Sauces and give your cooking a delicious twist.
