Creamy Peanut Butter Salad Dressing
This delicious peanut butter-based salad dressing is made with creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and more, for an Asian flavor which would be lovely served with linguine, green onions and bell pepper. Garnish such a salad with chopped peanuts and cilantro and you will have a wonderful lunch or dinner. You could even add some cooked chicken or shrimp.
Make sure you use creamy peanut butter, since freshly ground peanut butter or the old-fashioned type will not work as well. This peanut butter salad dressing recipe makes enough for six side dish size salads so double it if you are thinking about drizzling it over an entree. Since the recipe contains soy sauce, which is naturally salty, it is best to choose a low-salt chicken broth, else the finished peanut butter salad dressing might end up too salty.
If you normally make Western style salad dressings, try this twist on the norm and put together something oriental and exotic instead. The great thing about simple salads is that you can add pretty much any salad dressing to any combination of vegetables and end up with something amazing. All you need to do to make this is combine the ingredients and your dressing is ready to use. Toss it with your ingredients, drizzle it over the top or serve it on the side so people can dress their own salads.
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
- ¼ cup low-salt chicken broth
- 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 ½ tablespoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon oriental sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- Whisk all the ingredients together.
- Toss the peanut butter salad dressing with your favorite salad, or drizzle it over the top.
Although in the photo you can see we are serving the peanut sauce with noodles and julienne-cut veggies, it is a versatile dressing which is also great over iceberg or romaine. Add something crunchy such as nuts or raw bell pepper, along with other textures and flavors like pineapple, cucumber, raisins, chicken, shrimp, or water chestnuts. You will find this to be a fresh-tasting dressing which lends an authentic oriental charm to your salad. Whether served for lunch or dinner you will find this dressing to taste gorgeous. Simply combine the ingredients and you will have a wonderful dressing in just a few minutes.
