  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or Tamari
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • cup water


  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender (peanut butter last to prevent sticking).
  • Blend on high until smooth.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • The Thai peanut dressing will last 5-7 days refrigerated.


  • If the dressing feels too thick, thin it with water until you reach your preferred consistency.
  • In order to add a spicier kick to the peanut Thai dressing, add more red chili flakes to taste.
  • To make this peanut Thai dressing a dip or spread, reduce the amount of water. Also, be aware, it thickens in the refrigerator. 
  • For a healthy peanut Thai dressing, use all-natural peanut butter with no added sugar. 
  • And, if you want a lower-fat peanut Thai dressing, use PBfit Peanut Butter Powder.
  • Skip the maple syrup in the ingredients when using jarred peanut butter with sugar.
  • Choose almond or cashew butter instead of peanuts.
  • For a gluten-free option, use tamari or liquid aminos.
  • When using jarred peanut butter, add the peanut butter last so it doesn't stick in the bottom of the blender.
