You guys know I’m a huge peanut butter lover, so when I made this incredible, healthy Thai peanut dressing I immediately fell in love. This stuff is creamy, flavorful, and I pretty much want to drizzle it on everything.
Thai peanut dressing ingredients
I’ve found that traditional peanut sauces and dressings tend to be thick and overpowering, which is why I wanted to make a lightened-up version that still tasted amazing. This easy Thai peanut dressing recipe has just 5 simple ingredients that are probably in your pantry right now, and will definitely be a new favorite.
- Peanut butter: to give the dressing that creamy peanut butter flavor.
- Gluten free soy sauce: you can use soy sauce or coconut aminos.
- Honey: to naturally sweeten the Thai peanut dressing a bit.
- Ground ginger: I like using ground ginger for ease but feel free to use freshly grated ginger if you’d like.
- Apple cider vinegar: every good dressing needs a little acidity.
- Warm water: to thin the dressing a bit.
- Optional: cayenne pepper to make it spicy.
