You are right that "nothing is sterile but an operating room", I just don't care to take that chance, ya know norovirus and the like.
And so, for myself, I would not suggest to others to serve to a large gathering of humankind, dippable foods, because, well, we're all human after all.
How would a drizzle cause a problem?

I would be certainly troubled if there was dip that was provided for that many folks and try to believe that there wasn't double dipping going on somewhere along the line. I would be avoiding those foods far away. Just how many individual containers would be needed for 40-50 folks? And who is going to stand there and be the Double Dipper Police?

No, not for crowds. However, Chinese restaurant buffets provide tubs of dipping sauce with a stack of little paper cups so customers can take their own supply of sauce.

Have you ever seen folks that need to have more of that "Oh my, that's tasty, I've got to try and dip my (fill in the dipper blank ________ ) and get more of that!"
As I said, we're all human and can be, well, you know ...
So I simply steer clear of all those situations, that's all; that's my story and I'm stickin' to it

But back to the topic on hand...

Dragnlaw, please let us all know what you ultimately decide on ... I don't think that this community will stop offering ideas though

To be blunt, I won't be going to a party where possible double dipping (swapping spit) with dozens of strangers is on the menu.

I'm going to have to give this a shot.

You mentioned that it was adapted from a sauce. What is different in the sauce? I'll guess that it was thicker, so with less lemon juice, vinegar, and oil.
