Easy Peanut Sauce

This easy peanut sauce contains healthy 5 ingredients simple which is hard to come by at the store. Do they even sell peanut butter sauce?! However, I have to say grocery store healthy sauce selection is getting better but not the price.

So my “secret sauce” is made exclusively with pantry and fridge ingredients. And is great for chicken satay, noodles, salad, spring rolls, stir fry and as a dipping sauce. I think it’s so good, I made peanut sauce chicken with it.

What Does It Taste Like?

This quick peanut sauce recipe reminds me Japanese restaurant salad carrot ginger salad dressing but different because I didn’t grate ginger etc. You can make it more spicy by adding red pepper flakes.

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. The sauce was so good we would buy extra to take home.

  1. Very yummy. My husband asked for red pepper flakes as he likes Thai peanut sauce that is spicy, but I ate mine without any and it was very good.

  2. I agree with everyone else’s review-it is super easy to follow and tastes really good especially on stir fry!!!
