Ginger Peanut dressing

ginger peanut dressing

Ginger peanut dressing is a tangy, sweet, spicy and nutty salad dressing which is probably my favorite salad dressing and if you have not tasted it yet, then you are missing a tasty delight in your life. Yes, it is that good. Though I can just eat the whole thing by a spoonful but Hey!! it is a salad dessing so I think its a good idea to drizzle this over your green salad or cole slaw. 
This dressing is a beautiful blend of heathy and tasty ingredients together. Ginger, peanut butter, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and soy sauce, all comes together to form a perfect pairing for a salad. I added red grapes in the recipe to bring natural sweetness to this recipe, as in that way you can use less sweetner.  I first had this dressing in a restaurant called Asian Bistro, where they served this with green salad and I was in love with this dressing. You can find ginger peanut dressing in almost every Thai restaurant. But it is pretty easy to make so why not make a big batch which can easily go for a week .
