Maybe you haven't heard of donair sauce before – that's ok – I forgive you! 😉 lol
Donair sauce is a popular deliciously creamy and sweet garlic sauce that many East Coast Canadians like to use as a dip for cheesy garlic fingers (like garlic bread) or on our famous Donairs.
Previously, I shared with you how to make The Famous Atlantic Canadian “Halifax Donair” and so today, I give you the awesome recipe for the special sauce that goes with it. 🙂
I grew up an East Coaster in New Brunswick and I remember eating many many donairs as a kid. Now that I live in Toronto it's very difficult to find a proper donair so I'm so happy to be able to make them at home!
I hope you enjoy this recipe! ❤️ If you give it a try, please let me know how it turned out for you in the comments section at the bottom of the page or share a pic of your om noms on Instagram and tag @dishesanddustbunnies! ❤️

What is donair sauce made of?
Donair sauce is made from a combination of sweetened condensed milk, garlic powder and vinegar.
There are other versions of donair sauce that use evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed milk – I'm testing out this variation of the recipe, and once it's perfect, I'll add the details here. 🙂
How to make Donair Sauce
Making the sauce is super easy! All you have to do is combine the ingredients by hand using a fork or electric mixer. As you mix the ingredients, the sauce will thicken.
How long is Donair Sauce good for?
Homemade doniar sauce will last at least a month when stored in an air tight container in the fridge. It takes a long long time before it will spoil, and typically gets used up before it gets to that point anyways!
We rarely have leftover donair sauce in this house! haha It's sooooo yummy!
What do you eat with Donair Sauce?
- most commonly used on The Famous Atlantic Canadian “Halifax Donair”
- dip for garlic cheese fingers (recipe coming soon!)
- sauce base for donair pizza
- on donair subs (made similar to a donair wrap, except the ingredients are topped on toasted sub buns – open faced)
- dip for fries
I'll add more uses for donair sauce to this list as I find them/think of them!
- 10 oz (300 ml) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Stir together all ingredients until thick. You might find that stirring it with a fork works best or you can use a stand mixer or electric mixer.
- You can use this right away but it tastes the best if it sits overnight in the fridge.
- Use as a topping for East Coast Canadian Halifax Donairs or garlic fingers!
