Peanut Dipping Sauce and Dressing

 Peanut Dipping Sauce and Dressing 


  I love dips and sauces, I always have. I feel like they make a dish. Over the last few years because of health issues most store bought sauces contain ingredients I can't have, and most homemade versions have vinegar, which is also a no-no for me. Vinegar is what makes dressings acidic and makes them so good! I have experimented for awhile with a peanut sauce that tastes just as good as the versions that contain rice vinegar, but is safe for those who can't have vinegar. I LOVE this sauce. I dip spring rolls in it, I drizzle it over chicken, I thin it out a little and use it as a salad dressing. I make a batch of this each week and keep it in the fridge for an easy way to add flavor to a meal. 

Peanut Dipping Sauce and Dressing 


1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 TBSP maple syrup

3 TBSP coconut aminos 

1 TBSP toasted sesame oil

1-3 TBSP of water depending on use for the sauce 

( optional, 1 TBSP of fresh cilantro or green onions, I wanted to make a sauce with ingredients I always have on hand but if I have some fresh herbs to add it makes it even better!)


1) Combine all ingredients except for the water in a small jar and mix with an immersion blender until well incorporated. You can also use a whisk but it will be a lot creamier if you use an immersion blender. 

2) If you are using it as a dipping sauce serve as is. 

3) For a salad dressing slowly add one TBSP of water at a time to reach desired consistency. The sauce also will thicken in the refrigerator overnight so you will need to stir it or add a little water or coconut aminos before serving as a dressing. 


Keeps for 5 days in the refrigerator in a sealed jar.
