If you’d like to add a little kick to your salad bowl, this is your dressing. I use it on my Grilled Pineapple Salad because it’s a nice way to balance out the sweetness.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes ~1 cup
  • • ½ cup peanut butter
  • • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • • 2 teaspoons ginger powder
  • • Optional: 2 to 3 teaspoons Sriracha sauce for heat
  • • 6 tablespoons water

Add all ingredients (except water) to a bowl and mix until thick and smooth. Add in water and stir until you create a creamy dressing consistency. If you’d like a thinner consistency, add an additional tablespoon of water. Add sriracha sauce for heat, if preferred.

You can stash leftovers in the fridge. Note that it will thicken up to a stiffer peanut butter-like consistency. Simply add 1 tablespoon of water at a time and stir until it reaches your preferred consistency. Adding extra water will not dilute flavor—it will be as delicious as the original version.
