Thai Peanut Dressing

This recipe Thai Peanut Dressing is amazing!  I made it to serve as a salad dressing and it made an ordinary salad, extraordinary!!

I have since made Thai Peanut Dressing and served it over hot linguini  garnished with bean sprouts, cucumbers, and green onions – thus taking this Thai Peanut Dressing and turning it into hot Peanut Butter Noodles.  Delicious!  I then decided to use it to make cold Peanut Butter Noodles – – again – Delicious!  The little bit of Thai Peanut Dressing that was left over we used as a dip for veges.  This made a great, healthy, flavorful snack.
