A few years ago, my family visited Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner.

Although I wasn’t too impressed with our experience dining in the restaurant,  I found that I couldn’t get enough of their Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce.

It was so creamy and flavorful.  The great thing about dipping sauces is that they can spice up a plain old piece of chicken and take it to the next level.

After tasting their delicious Garlic Parmesan Dipping Sauce, I began a quest to find a recipe that mimics the Buffalo Wild Wings sauce and I think I have found one.

Ingredients to make Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Sauce.

Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Sauce

Garlic Parmesan Dipping Sauce reminds me a lot of a creamy Italian Dressing but with a little kick from the red pepper flakes.

If you don’t like it spicy, you can definitely leave the red pepper flakes out.  

This sauce could also be thinned with some milk to make an awesome salad dressing! It’s so yummy you could dip almost anything in it. From chicken to veggies!

Garlic Parmesan Sauce Ingredients

*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.

Garlic- To make this sauce, you can use fresh minced garlic or use minced garlic from a jar.

Olive Oil You can use any kind of cooking oil you want when making this recipe. I used Olive Oil though because it tastes really good in the sauce. If you don’t have olive oil, you can skip it or use another type of oil in its place.

Mayonnaise You will need 1/2 cup for this recipe so go ahead and add a cup to your shopping list. You can also use Miracle Whip or another type of mayonnaise instead if you prefer it, but it will change the flavor a bit.

Sugar Granulated sugar will work in this recipe. If you don’t have sugar, that’s okay too because you could add something else like maple syrup or honey in it’s place.

Parmesan Cheese- Grated Parmesan cheese will add a lot of good flavor to this recipe. I prefer to use the parmesan cheese in the green bottle like this, to keep the correct texture of this sauce.

Vinegar- White vinegar is all you need for this recipe.

Lemon Juice Fresh lemon juice will work really great in this sauce.

Salt You only need regular table salt, not kosher or sea salt.

Red Pepper FlakesI like to add a little red pepper flake for some spice and it gives the sauce a little kick. If you don’t like it spicy, you can definitely leave the red pepper flakes out or add less than I used in my recipe.

Basil I used dried basil leaves.

MarjoramDried marjoram leaves were used for this recipe.

A dish with basil and morjoram.

Thyme Fresh or dried thyme will work great in the sauce.

Black PepperFor a little spice, I like to add some fresh ground black pepper, but regular ground black pepper from a jar is good too.

In the verbiage you say you need 1 cup of mayo which I measured out (too make sure I had enough). Then I started adding the ingredients in the recipe. 1/2 way through I saw that the recipe calls for a half cup mayo. Do I have to now double all the ingredients in the recipe for the one cup mayo or is the amount in the recipe a typo?

One cup is a typo. It is 1/2 cup like what is stated in the recipe card. I will get that fixed!

We love this sauce. It is my go-to garlic parm sauce. I'm not a white vinegar guy so I use rice vinegar instead. Once in awhile I throw about a half cup of cooked bacon and a tsp or 2 of bacon drippings in as well. Absolutely amazing. I'm so glad I found this recipe. Thank you Mommymouseclub!!
