Thai Salad Dressing or Thai  Peanut Sauce Or Dipping Sauce recipe makes a great dip for fresh spring roll, egg roll or for an easy Asian salad recipe. This Thai peanut butter salad dressing is so easy to make and you can find most of the ingredients in your pantry. It’s a flavorful dressing with peanut butter, apple cider vinegar, agave and without fish sauce. You can’t go wrong with this 5-minute a asian vinaigrette salad dressing recipe. I love to make my own homemade salad dressings because they are healthier and cheaper than the store-bought stuff.

Making this homemade Thai Salad Dressing doesn’t require special equipment. You can use your high-speed blender, food processor or a mixing bowl and a whisk.  This healthy salad dressing recipe is very nutritious and filling. Peanut butter is packed with protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats (good fats that are found in natural foods, such as olives and avocados). Apple cider vinegar could lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar, help you lose weight and boost energy. You can read more apple cider vinegar benefits here.
