This is a simple and versatile Thai inspired peanut sauce that can be used for a stir fry, noodles, pizza, dipping vegetables, or as a salad dressing.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (creamy, all natural peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar (see note below)
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon minced green onion (white and light green parts)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice - fresh squeezed is best
  • 1/2 teaspoon sambal oelek chili sauce (substitute gochujang or sriracha)

Special Equipment:

No special equipment is required.

 

Preparation Method:

Preparing the sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.

Note:

The only difference between seasoned rice vinegar and plain rice vinegar is the addition of sugar and salt as the "seasoning" in seasoned rice vinegar. I prefer to control the sugar and salt additions to my food, so I always use plain rice vinegar.
