This healthy peanut sauce is made with coconut milk, creamy peanut butter, and Thai red curry paste. It can be used as a dipping sauce, salad dressing, for noodles, vegetables, spring rolls, or with chicken satay. You can even use it as a spread for crackers and filling for bread too.

  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 400 ml / 1 can Coconut milk
  • 150 g Creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp Rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 2 tbsp Date syrup
  • 1 tbsp Lime juice
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp Cilantro, chopped
  1. Heat sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in curry paste and stir briefly. Pour in coconut milk and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add in peanut butter, rice vinegar, date syrup and lime juice. Cook, stirring, for 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and lime juice. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
  3. Serve as a dipping sauce for chicken skewers, vegetables or boiled eggs, as a spread for crackers or as a bread filling. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

When I read peanut sauce, I thought of satay (grilled meat on bamboo skewers). This sounds yummy, would love to taste it.

Easy, delicious and so great to have at the ready for everything. Hoping I won't eat it right out of the jar with a spoon before it makes its way to noodles or chicken. ;-) ~Valentina

Oh this looks like a winner. I plan to try the sauce with summer rolls.

I love peanut sauce with grilled meat. Your idea to use it as a salad dressing sounds great too.

Evi @ greenevi 4/11/20 12:01

This sauce has so many things I love, I'd put it on everything 😍

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 4/11/20 16:40

Peanut sauce is one of my weaknesses. I don't have the date sauce, so have put it on my list. Trying this for sure. As it happens, I have chicken marinating in yogurt in the fridge at the moment, so it will be the perfect sipper.

Marcelle 5/11/20 13:21

Angie, I love peanut sauce and your's looks crazy good. We love it on noodles or with chicken, I've never thought to use it as a spread or a dip with crackers! Oh yum, that is gonna be so good!!

3 cheers for satay with peanut sauce :p I also like an Indonesian dish Gado Gado which dips vegetables, hard boiled eggs, potatoes etc in peanut sauce.

Eva Taylor 6/11/20 14:23

We love Thai flavours and this recipe hits all the right ones for us. I’d probably use chunky peanut butter because I love the texture.

Suja Manoj 6/11/20 21:03

I like this healthy peanut sauce and I want to dip some "lontong" steamed rice cakes in them.
