Thai Peanut Dressing


These ingredients and measurements are more or less to taste. I have found that just a touch too much peanut butter or garlic can over power the dressing, so make sure to taste as you go along. 


1/4 c Lime Juice

2 Tbsp Peanut butter ( if you want extra texture use crunchy peanut butter)

2 Tbsp Soy Sauce ( I use low sodium)

2 Tbsp Honey

2-4 Garlic cloves

2 Tbps Hot water

2-3 Tbsp Sesame seed oil

1 Tsp Chilli paste with garlic

Add Salt  and/or sugar to taste

 1 Tsp Cayenne pepper (optional if you want extra heat)



Add all ingredients into a blender or food processor except the sesame seed oil and hot water. 

Once blended and on a low setting add hot water, then slowly add sesame oil.  


Refrigerate any remaining dressing up to two weeks. 


About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
