I made this sauce to go with Vietnamese meatballs for a dinner that we were hosting. It was a HUGE success - even the two 3 year olds loved it! I didn't cook the sauce so I added a little warm water to the regular 1% milk I used to thin it out (I didn't have any coconut milk). Also, I didn't add the red peppers or the chopped peanuts. Our guests raved over the sauce saying that it was the best they have ever had. Definitely give it 5 stars... more if I could.

good! I had a similar experience in having guests ask for more spring rolls, just so they could snag more of the sauce. Because of a guest's sensitivity to peanuts, I used cashew butter this time instead. Wow. Even better. Thank you so much for this recipe.
