This luscious vegan peanut sauce whips up in minutes and tastes just like it came from a Thai restaurant! Perfect for salads or dipping, but also good enough to eat from a spoon!
Whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, maple syrup, garlic, ginger, and sambal oelek or sriracha (if using) together in a medium bowl.
Add the coconut milk and continue whisking until smooth.
Thin with water or additional coconut milk until the sauce reaches your desired thickness, adding a tablespoon of liquid at a time.
Taste-test and adjust any seasoings to suit your taste.
Makes about 1 ½ cups.
