I love this! I add just a touch more coconut milk (like 1/2 TBSP) and that seems to give it just the right amount of sweetness

Did not care much for this recipe. too bland and no notations of sweetness in the background, which I find in most restaurant peanut sauces. Would not pair with fresh summer rolls.

SO good, we serve this along with the sweet & spicy sauce with cold spring rolls and it's delicious. You can use smooth low-sugar peanut butter as well, which just makes it a little sweeter. Yum!

so easy and delicious. I did not have all the ingredients. I had to use red wine vinegar instead of soy sauce and chili powder instead of hot sauce. and it was still great. I bet it is even better if I had the correct ingredients

I added grated frozen ginger. So yummy and easy. Thanks!

It was good, not the best, but good. We were happy with the results after I added ginger-in-a-tube, about 3 teaspoons or so and it gave it more favor. I will add more next time and we also used Chili Sauce to spice it up. I had also used chunky peanut butter as thats what the family loves and it was perfect for dipping in chicken. The con is that I would not use lime next time. I felt it was not needed and it made it a bit bitter.
