Thai Peanut Dressing

LucyDelRey

"This makes a great sweet and savory sauce or salad dressing like the ones served at restaurants. It makes a great dip for fresh Thai or Vietnamese spring rolls. It's easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients in my cupboard. Garnish with mint leaves and chopped peanuts if desired."

The consistency and basic recipe is pretty good, but the end product was a bit bland for me. I added some powdered ginger (no fresh on hand), extra soy sauce, honey, and sriracha chili sauce. I ...
