Paleo Mayo Meets Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Sauce

Ok, so I know that using parmesan cheese in a dipping sauce reverts it from being Paleo.   However, I maintain that because it is made with so many other healthy ingredients and a quality parmesan, that it is still leagues above the creamy Parmesan Garlic sauce that they coat their wings with at Buffalo Wild Wings.  Also, if you have enjoyed the Parmesan Garlic sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings, than you most likely do not have a major lactose sensitivity.  Therefore, I hope you enjoy this healthier remake as much as Taylor did.

The base of this sauce is my Paleo Mayonnaise.  I used a quality parmesan cheese from the deli section that was already finely grated instead of microplaning it myself.  You can use whatever parmesan cheese you prefer.  I would just make sure the consistency is more like powdery snow than in shreds.

The only thing I would change about this recipe in the future is to make more of it.  As is, it only makes a little bit more than one half of a cup.  Since I was making it for the first time and only wanted to use it as a dip for my Paleo Chicken Nuggets, I did not want to make too much – a mistake I will remedy in the future!  I was wishing I had leftovers to make canned chicken breast into a parmesan garlic chicken salad!  I also plan on making a play on Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic wings in the near future.
