Veggie Salad with Peanut Sauce

veggie salad with peanut sauce simple

I could honestly drink this peanut sauce straight from the bowl! A versatile sauce that you can use for so many wonderful dishes. I paired this with a simple fresh medley of vegetables but you can replace or add whatever vegetables you’d like. You could also enjoy this with some crispy chicken schnitzels, cold noodle salad, spring rolls, or whatever tickles your fancy.

So for this recipe, you can use unsweetened or regular peanut butter but if you use unsweetened peanut butter then I’d recommend you add the optional tbsp of honey or maple syrup. Also, you can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter, depending on your preference. You could also replace the almond flakes with crushed peanuts (I just prefer almonds).

This peanut sauce yields 1 cup of sauce.
