Not only is this peanut sauce simple, it is also clean which is hard to come by at the store. Do they even sell peanut sauces? It reminded me Japanese restaurant’s salad dressing, carrot ginger salad dressing, but different because I didn’t grate ginger etc. This easy peanut sauce is made exclusively with pantry and fridge ingredients and is great for chicken, noodles, salad, stir fry and dipping. You name it.
I can’t remember for sure but I think I had similar sauce at a steak restaurant many-many years ago when we used to live in Calgary (thank God “used to”, no offence, great people but climate…). The sauce was so good we would buy extra to take home. I bet it was made with crap. However, I have to say store’s clean eating sauce and salad dressing situation is getting better but not the price…
So, you can really do anything you want with this easy peanut sauce. You can smother it on toast, use as a salad dressing, frozen vegetables stir fry sauce (add at the end), steak sauce, veggie dip, fresh vegetable spring rolls dip etc.
I poured this healthy peanut butter sauce on peanut slaw.
