Vietnamese Peanut Sauce - Dipping Sauce for Fresh Spring Rolls

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Whats Cooking

I haven't tried this, but it's supposed to be a great dipping sauce for Vietnamese-style fresh spring rolls. I found it on the Kitchen Chick blog, and it is apparently adapted from "Foods of Vietnam" by Nicole Routhier. If you are gluten-free you can find gluten-free hoisin sauces made by brands such as Kame or Premier Japan.

What a terrific recipe! I loved the flavor with egg rolls & will be making this again! I used sriracha sauce and splenda. Thank you for sharing this keeper!
