Mind blowingly good peanut sauce!

once upon a time, i had an amazing peanut sauce at a little hole in the wall vietnamese restaurant. i've been searching for a similar recipe ever since and i have at last found it! *glee* this is by far the best peanut sauce i have ever made. i used 3 T orange blossom honey instead of sugar... and since i only had salted organic peanut butter, i used a bit less soy sauce to even the salt out.

I keep a jar of this in the fridge at all times. Soooo good. Great mixed with rice. Usually though, I increase the peanut butter to 3/4 cup, because sometimes I have trouble tasting the peanut butteriness. But fabulous recipe w/o alteration. :)
