This dish is one of the first dishes and recipes I got just right at Rye Bar and Grill, Tauranga. The creamy, tangy, aromatic dip with the spicy wings is perfect with an ice cold beer and friends. The sauce would work well if added to a pizza or seafood skewers. And the blue cheese will work as a salad dressing too.
