Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

Peanuty perfection.  This dip hits on some amazing flavour points: salty peanuts, zesty lime, spicy cayenne, creamy coconut milk, sharp garlic, rich sesame oil and soy sauce.  Trust me, you need to find something to dip in this, STAT. Preferably Veggie Rice Paper Wraps. 

And since the creaminess comes from coconut milk, this recipe qualifies as vegan.  Imagine being able to accommodate your vegan friends with this gem of a dipping sauce?  Serve it with the above mentioned Veggie Rice Paper wraps and Pho Bo, and you’ll be sure to win the vegan dinner party!
