If you’ve ever tried the commercially available BWW garlic parmesan sauce, then you’ve probably noticed it doesn’t taste quite right.

That’s because the ingredients used in the fresh sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings aren’t entirely the same.

Fortunately, after some trial and error, I’ve managed to replicate the taste of the original using nothing more than some simple ingredients.

Ingredients for Buffalo Wild Wings Dipping Sauce

The signature taste of this garlic parmesan sauce comes from the unique blend of spicy and tart flavors.

In order to match this, I used lemon juice and apple cider vinegar and mixed in some chili flakes to spice things up.

The parmesan doesn’t need to be super fresh too. In fact, I like using one that’s been open for a while since this gives it a slightly more pronounced taste. If you think I’m mad – don’t worry – even expired parmesan is okay to consume as long as it does not have molds on it.

Anyway, the true secret that’s going to take your Buffalo Garlic Parmesan sauce to the next level is leaving it in the refrigerator overnight.

    • Hi Lisa,

      That’s the mix of dry seasonings.

      In this case, you can see them in the recipe card under “Dry Seasoning Mix”.

      So:

      1/3 tsp Black pepper
      1/3 tsp Fresh thyme
      1/3 tsp Oregano
      1/3 tsp Basil
      1/3 tsp Marjoram
      2/3 tsp Salt
      2/3 tsp Red pepper flakes

      ..combined.

      Hope this helps!

      Aya
