Thai Salad Dressing or Thai Peanut Sauce Or Dipping Sauce recipe makes a great dip for fresh spring rolls, egg rolls 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.
A flavorful Thai Peanut Dressing with simple ingredients: peanut butter, apple cider vinegar, agave and without fish sauce. You can’t go wrong with this 5-minute 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 or Thai Peanut Sauce doesn’t require special equipment. You can use your high-speed blender, food processor or a mixing bowl and a whisk.
To make this Thai salad dressing, I used organic agave nectar. Agave nectar has a more neutral flavor than honey and it’s 1 1/2 times sweeter than sugar or about 50% sweeter than honey. Feel free to use honey or sugar instead of agave nectar, be sure to use less of it.
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.
Try it and let me know how you like this Thai salad dressing recipe. This popular Thai salad dressing is perfect for green salad, egg rolls, spring rolls, crispy tofu and also good with almost any salad ingredients, from raw or cooked vegetables.
When I have a homemade salad dressing that I really like I can reverse engineer a salad around it. Juicier vegetables with a bit of crunch like cucumbers or sugar snap peas come to mind when I taste this Thai salad dressing. With it doubling as a dipping sauce it can easily be used to brighten up the taste of a platter with these or other veggies.
I know quite a few people that are on a health kick to lose weight or improve their sugar and cholesterol levels, and feel like the only way they’ll be able to keep eating salads is by “cheating” with an unhealthy dressing. It’s really not necessary though, there are so many delicious dressings out there that don’t compromise the other healthy choices you’re making. Even if your palate is accustomed to a lot of salt and sugar you can find great tasting substitutions in every entrée, side, sauce or dressing.
