This yummy Thai Peanut Dressing is SO flavorful, quick and easy to make, and it tastes delicious on everything from salads to stir-frys to saté and beyond!
I don’t know about you all, but I find a good Thai peanut dressing downright irresistible.
I mean, any good peanut dressing (or peanut sauce) for that matter is always a win in my book. But especially when it’s mixed Thai-style with some tangy lime juice, a hint of spicy sriracha, and a kick of ginger — I can’t get enough of the stuff. It’s the perfect way to kick your salads up a delicious notch. Or — bonus — it also tastes delicious paired with your favorite proteins, roasted veggies, stir-frys, you name it!
Such a delicious and versatile recipe. And it’s wonderfully simple to make as well. Here’s my favorite recipe!
I generally just mix this recipe together by hand. But feel free to toss it in a blender or food processor too — whatever works! And as always, be sure to give it a good taste before serving, and season it with any extra ingredients that you might like. For example:
If you’d like a spicier dressing, feel free to add extra sriracha. (Or omit the sriracha if you prefer less-spicy.)
If you’d like an herbier dressing, feel free to add in 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro.
If you’d like a thinner dressing, feel free to whisk in a few extra tablespoons of water or coconut milk.
Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until evenly combined. (Or — my favorite method — shake them together in a sealed mason jar or salad dressing bottle until evenly combined.) If you would like to thin out the dressing, feel free to add in a few tablespoons of water or coconut milk until the dressing reaches your desired consistency.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
*Use tamari if making this recipe gluten-free.
