I've used this recipe a couple of times. I used it as a dipping sauce for thai salad rolls and as a marinade for grilled chicken salad. Both meals were delicious.
I hate to be the voice of disent but I found the recipe very salty (and I'm a salt person). If I make it again I would cut the soy sauce in half. I also cut the garlic down to 2 cloves and added more cilantro than the recipe called for. I served it with plain, grilled scewered chicken and fresh snow pea pods for dipping.
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday bash and I doubled the recipe. It went much further than I expected and brought half of it to work the next week. I can't tell you how many people asked for the recipe! And they all had ideas for other ways to use it - salad dressing, add coconut milk and pour over chicken, etc. They kept coming back for more. I served it with veggies (snap peas are perfect) and pretzels. I will definitely make it again. It was so easy too.
I used half of this recipe to marinate chopped chicken breast which I then stir-fried with asparagus and mushrooms. I served it over rice. I warmed up the other half of the sauce and drizzled some over the chicken and rice. I also served it as a dipping sauce for Schwan's Pork Potstickers. It was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!
This is a bit on the thin side for a dip, but it's GREAT as a marinade for chicken or tossed with whole wheat noodles for an awesome Thai pasta. I substitute some of the peanut oil with sesame oil and chili oil--yum! Oh, and use lime juice, not lemon, and reduced sodium soy sauce--trust me!
This is so good - it has become a staple at every gathering I attend.
I LOVE this. It's a bit runny as a dip, but delicious! Very strong flavors, though, so be certain you like them all. I taste the red wine vinegar most prominently. I ate with some sliced cucumbers I had, and can see how it would be wonderful as a marinade too. It does make a lot if you are using as a dip, so I think I might try it with some pasta or as a marinade as well. I dumped it all in the food processor at once, and it was fine, although still somewhat chunky, but I don't mind it that way. Thanks!
I LOVE this recipe!! Great with raw sugar snap peas, celery sticks, carrot sticks, etc. I used left overs as a stir fry sauce with lightly cooked veggies. This one is a keeper!
