This easy, one-step peanut sauce is fantastic with any veggies, but especially with red peppers and snow peas. It's also great warmed up and served over pasta! The best flavor is achieved using fresh garlic and fresh lemon juice.

Not sure where I went wrong - far too salty. Equal parts peanut butter and soya sauce seems way out of proportion. Read More

My stars should be higher! Only reason I gave it a 4 was because it was too much soy for my taste. I also did as another reviewer and substituted may for coconut milk. Redid another batch w/ half the soy sauce and doubled the (coconut for mayo) mixed both batches (too salty one) w/ remade one... awesome! I used it as a topping to rice w. veggies AND as a dipping sauce w/ raw veggies. I loved this and will be doing it again. It was so easy to make. The longer its refrigerated the better Read More

This is a winner so thanks for sharing Ashbeth. I LOVE this as a dipping sauce for breaded chicken tenders or nuggets. The other readers' suggestions were so interesting as well especially the cayenne or red pepper flakes. I can't stop dipping sugar snap peas celery & carrot sticks into this as my side for my beloved breaded chicken tenders. Read More

I just put this in the fridge to chill but I can't stop licking the bowl. It is delicious! So easy and made with ingredients I had on hand. I added 1/4 tsp Thai red curry powder just to see how I'd like it--good and not overpowering. I'll be eating this on everything! Read More

Wow this is really good! When I looked at the ingredient combination I really didn't know what to think? I used Skippy cream natural mayo with olive oil low sodium soy sauce and followed everything else the same. I wish the recipe gave more ideas to dip in this. Delicious! Read More

Mayo? Really? I subbed the Mayo with milk because I was out of coconut milk. I upped the peanut butter and milk and mixed the sauce with vegetables for Thai lettuce wraps. Very good and easy. Read More
