Dumpling Dipping Sauce (水饺调料)

Dipping sauce differs from region to region in China. Just as dumplings are wrapped different in other regions as well. This is a typical dipping sauce from the Sichuan region, where my husband is from. It happens to encompass some of the commonly know regional flavors as well. A bit of garlic, cilantro, chili, bean paste, and vinegar. Most of which are not usually added to dipping sauce.
