Spicy Asian Peanut Dressing

peanut-dressingI have been using a spicy peanut dressing that comes from Trader Joe’s for some time now. It is not always available when I visit their store.

So this Christmas I decided to try and duplicate their dressing when I could not get another bottle for a party I was planning.

This is my version. Actually most people who have tried it like it better than the original. I like it better because you can adjust the thickness to whatever you want to use it on.

I like a little thicker so that it sticks to the lettuce or cabbage greens.
