Easy Peanut Sauce in bowls

One of my favorite things to use peanut sauce for is a dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls with shrimp.

They taste so good together.

Peanut sauce is also delicious with skewered grilled chicken and appetizer-size pieces of cooked meat with toothpicks for handling.

It can also be served as a hot or cold sauce to mix with noodles.

And peanut sauce makes a great marinade for meat and cooking sauce with vegetables.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Peanut Sauce Ingredients

Creamy peanut butter, ginger root, Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, sugar and red pepper flakes
