I know there's lots of recipes for this type of sauce but this is my favorite and it's low in fat and calories. I've served this with veggies, as an appetizer, or tossed it with noodles as a main dish (Must sprinkle with plenty of cilantro!!) Recipe courtesy of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine peanut butter, ginger root, garlic, scallions, stock, soy sauce or tamari, vinegar, honey, cilantro and hot sauce in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
  2. Check the seasoning and add more soy sauce, vinegar or honey according to your taste. The sauce should be a little sweet, sour and salty.
  3. Serve it with veggies for dipping or toss it with noodles and garnish with LOTS (we like lots) of freshly chopped cilantro.

YUM!! I made this and used it as a dipping sauce for spring rolls and it was wonderful. I added a little bit of dried red chili flakes for heat, and 1 tsp of sugar for a little more sweet. Other than that made exactly as stated and it was just great. Thanks for the post Jude!!
