Thai peanut dressingIngredients

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white or rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil to taste
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Ground peanuts (optional)


Dissolve the cornstarch in 1/2 cup of cold water; set aside.

Whisk together the soy sauce, peanut butter, brown sugar, white vinegar, sesame oil, and 1 cup warm water in a small saucepan over medium heat; simmer and stir until sugar has dissolved. Stir in the cornstarch mixture; simmer until the sauce is thick, 1 or 2 minutes. Serve warm.

This is a great salad dressing—just add more vinegar to taste—or as a sauce for appetizers, chicken satay, or veggie dippers.
