Peanut sauces are common accompaniments to Thai and Indonesian dishes. Use this as a dipping sauce for chicken and beef satay. Sambal is available at Asian markets.




  • In a blender or food processor, combine peanut butter, oil, soy sauce, garlic, sambal, and sugar until smooth. Add lemon juice to taste.

  • With machine running, add coconut milk or water until sauce reaches desired consistency. Garnish with scallion slices. Serve.
