habanero pepper, seeded and chopped (wear gloves)
rice wine vinegar
creamy peanut butter
black sesame seeds
I did not have an habanero pepper, only a jalapeno, so that's what I used. Next time, I will be sure to buy the habanero because what I made needed more heat. I didn't have black seseame seeds, so I used regular, and I don't think that affected the taste too much. The one negative I have is that I think the peanut butter taste dominated too much, so I'd use less the next time, and add more if necessary after tasting. Served this with the recommended chop chop salad.
We made this dressing for the first time last week and have made it 5 times since then. We have shared it with so many people and everyone LOVES it! It is VERY spicy with the habanero in it, but I like spicy. If you didn't want it too spicy, maybe use half of a habanero or a jalepeno instead. I also want to try it as a marinade too.
Loved the fl;avor for this but we used as a dipping type sauce fro grilled veggies that I made. I put it on a garden salad and the taste did not seem to work all that well so maybe a different type of salad would be better. I really did love it as the dipping sauce and willmake it again for that for sure.
I really did like this! It grows on you. I can't even say I like it on it's own, but on salad it's great! However, I did make changes. I sauteed the garlic and pepper (jalapeno instead of habanero) before blending and used white balsamic and some apple cider vinegar. I really liked the texture and the flavor was good but I think could be improved by using the right pepper and vinegar. I will saute again. I ate an entire plate of greens so it served it's purpose! It is creamy, a little sweet with a little heat- just about the perfect dressing!
