Spicy Peanut Sauce

Spicy Peanut Sauce is perfect for Thai and Asian-style stir-fries. Because it's so versatile, it makes a delicious dressing for salads, it gives sandwiches a tasty boost of flavor, and it's fantastic on vegan satay and skewers. It can also be served as a dip with fresh cut veggies or baked tofu. This easy homemade peanut sauce recipe comes together in a flash, and it's much tastier than bottled dressing. It's vegan and gluten-free.
