Always a favorite, this peanut sauce is light and easy to prepare and great for dipping spring rolls or chicken. It can be kept in the fridge for a few days.

SO good we serve this along with the sweet & spicy sauce with cold spring rolls and it's delicious. You can use smooth low-sugar peanut butter as well which just makes it a little sweeter. Yum! Read More

I love this! I add just a touch more coconut milk (like 1/2 TBSP) and that seems to give it just the right amount of sweetness Read More

so easy and delicious. I did not have all the ingredients. I had to use red wine vinegar instead of soy sauce and chili powder instead of hot sauce. and it was still great. I bet it is even better if I had the correct ingredients Read More

This was the first peanut sauce I have ever tasted and thought it was just ok; tasting very little other than the peanut butter. I doubled the ingredients but not the peanut butter and thought it was better. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Great keto recipe with steamed veggies and tofu. I added a bit of rice vinegar ginger and stevia and it was much better. A little bland to me if you just follow the recipe. Read More
