Peanut Sauce

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

This peanut sauce is so delicious on Asian style salads, chicken or eaten out of the jar with a spoon. I don’t always have everything called for, but no matter what combination of ingredients I use it is always so good. I usually use fresh garlic and ginger in recipes, but by adding garlic powder and ginger powder this keeps in my refrigerator much longer.

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce (or regular)
  • 2 tsp sriracha or Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 – 6 Tbsp hot water (just enough for the consistency desired)

Blend everything in a blender or with a stick blender until smooth. I store it in jar in the refrigerator until needed. Can be served cold or slightly warm.
