  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, regular or low-sodium **

  • 2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • ** for Gluten-free peanut sauce, use tamari in place of the soy sauce


  • In a blender, process the soy sauce (OR tamari), peanut butter, vinegar, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper until combined. Add the sesame oil and canola and blend until smooth.
  • Serve immediately or keep refrigerated up to a week before using.
