Thai Peanut Sauce

This dressing is great on salads, in noodles, or in wraps.  I enjoy Thai food immensely, so this dressing is a regular occurrence in my kitchen.  There are many variations of it as well.  Sub out the peanut butter for almond butter, and it tastes just as good!  Let me know what y’all think!
