Peanut Sriracha Salad Dressing

Terrific! Thats what this interesting salad dressing is! My supermarket passed it along
on a package of coleslaw. I find its  strong Asian influence a perfect blend for something new. 

Tip: Don’t substitute another hot sauce for the sriracha, because you’ll wonder what all the hooplas about. Billed as one of the world’s most potent hot sauces, the sriracha elevates these everyday ingredients to a magical combination! Messing with perfection is never a wise idea (I neither solicit nor receive and gratuities or freebies for saying this). 

The salad? Here’s what I did, but anything you throw together will work just fine. To loose leaf lettuce, I added a small amount of coleslaw (for color), 1 mandarin orange (peeled and sectioned, with the sections cut in half), roughly 1/3 c. (80 mL) cherry tomatoes (sliced into halves or thirds), and a generous handful of parsley (stems removed). This, I tossed with enough dressing until the leaves glistened. Wow, was this salad ever delicious!

Peanut Sriracha Salad Dressing:

1/4 c. (60 mL) smooth or creamy peanut butter

1/4 c. (60 mL) rice vinegar
2 tbsp. (30 mL) soy sauce
2 tbsp. (30 mL) canola oil
1 tbsp. (15 mL) sesame oil
1 tbsp. (15 mL) honey
1 tsp. (5 mL) sriracha Asian hot sauce

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate until needed. Makes 1 cup (250 mL).
