Try this Creamy Thai Peanut Sauce on wraps, salads and veggies

This delicious nutty sauce has several uses.

It’s a great accompaniment to my Spicy Thai Lettuce Wraps and it can be used as a dressing. Toss it in your favorite crispy salad greens or cabbage and other fresh veggies for an Asian-inspired salad. Top the salad with crushed peanuts for a delicious added crunch.
