Using only five ingredients, this quick and easy peanut sauce recipe is a great choice for nights when you don't have time to chop fresh herbs or crush peanuts.


  • 5 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Chinese rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons white granulated sugar


Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to use. Note:For best results, refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Before serving, thin the sauce with a bit more warm water if needed. Use the peanut sauce within 3 - 4 days.

Yum yum peanut sauce, Member LisaVWest

Whipped this up in 3 minutes and used organic peanut butter (has no additives). It was amazing; best peanut sauce ever. My family couldn't get enough of it when they were dippping their homemade spring rolls in the sauce. Definitely will be in my family's recipe files.
