What is a Dip?
A dipping sauce or dip is a common condiment for many types of food. Dips are used to add flavour to a food, such as pita bread, dumplings, crackers, cut-up raw vegetables, seafood, cubed pieces of meat and cheese, potato chips, tortilla chips, or falafel. Unlike other sauces, instead of applying the sauce to the food, the food is typically put into, or dipped, into the dipping sauce (hence the name). Dips are commonly used for finger foods and other easily held foods.  Dip is a very widespread food; forms of it are eaten all over the world.
