Spicy Peanut Sauce for Noodles, Veggies And/or Meat

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by kitchengrrl

This is a recipe that my sister clipped out of a magazine almost 20 years ago. Despite that, it's surprisingly spicy and VERY tasty. You may want to add less chili oil if yours is very spicy, or more peanut butter if you'd like a thicker sauce.

This was good. I made exactly as posted. I didn't feel it was too spicy, it could have used a little more for me. But, for some reason, the vinegar was overpowering in the dish (I dont' feel that is the recipes fault). I used rice wine vinegar and only used 3 1/2 TBS. vinegar. I did this just with noodles. I used whole wheat linguine, and the sauce to noodle ratio was perfect. I loved the scallions at the end. Kept them crisp and vibrant tasting. Thanks for this recipe! I will be making it again.
