Yes! "Condiments" refer to different sauces, not just one kind of sauce! Condiments are usually sauces or spices added on the side to enhance the flavours of a dish, such as mayonnaise, chutney, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and mustard. Sometimes they are added before they are served, like mayonnaise on a sandwich. Ex: Len, can you put the condiments on the table, please? Ex: Do you have any condiments to put on this sandwich? It's a little dry.
