Spicy Peanut Sauce

There are many versions of this sauce out there, but this one works for me. Use it for noodles, dipping sauce, or thin it and dress spinach salad.

1/2 c chunky peanut butter
6T boiling water +/-
2 T honey
3 T grated ginger root (or more to taste)
2 T soy sauce
4  T sesame oil
squirt of sriracha sauce or hot pepper flakes to taste
lime juice
garlic to taste

I use unsweetened natural peanut butter.  If I want a hit of garlic, I crush a small clove and stir it in. For dipping sauce, thin it with a little additional water (or you can use tea). I usually toss this with noodles and veggies, this is about enough for a 1/2 lb box. Add cooked broccoli florets, red bell pepper, sliced cucumbers, pea pods or snap peas — it’s all good. Last night I added grilled sweet onions, yum!
