Peanut Lime Sauce

I love cooking food with Asian flavors and this versatile sauce is so good on so many dishes.  I used this sauce over a chilled Asian Peanut Pasta salad and it’s wonderful, tangy, and creamy with a nice tone of different spices and a bit of heat.  Use it over hot or cold pasta dishes, dip fresh vegetables in it, use it as a dip for many different Asian appetizers like shrimp summer rolls or wontons.  This sauce has endless possibilities, if you like peanut butter then this is a recipe you need to keep close by.  Oh, also try it with chicken or beef satay skewers.
