Ridiculously easy Thai peanut sauce recipe that’s slightly spicy, made in the blender, and doubles as a dressing. You can add it to stir-fry, noodles, salads, and satay!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup Peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice (about 1 1/2 limes)
  • 3 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce (I use liquid aminos; use tamari if you’re gluten-free)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1” fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic (about 23 garlic cloves)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor EXCEPT the cilantro.
  2. Once it is creamy, add cilantro.
  3. Pulse until cilantro is in small pieces.
  4. Use your dressing on your salad or meal as desired. That’s it!

Notes

  • I’m NOT using fish sauce or sesame oil. I love both ingredients, but this recipe is perfect without them!
  • Every ingredient is necessary. I’ve tried reducing and subbing and the results were not nearly as good.
