This quick and creamy five-ingredient sauce will lend Thai flavors to salads, noodles, poultry, seafood and even sandwiches. Red curry paste, available at most larger grocery stores, is a great flavor-boosting ingredient to have on hand for adding heat and a subtle sweetness to sauces, soups, stews and stir fries. A little goes a long way and a small jar will keep in your refrigerator for several months after opening.



  1. Combine the peanut butter, coconut milk, vinegar, soy sauce and curry paste in a blender and blend on high until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender jar once or twice with a rubber spatula. The sauce should be the consistency of thick pancake batter. If it’s too thick, add warm water a tablespoon at a time, blending to combine. (Depending on the brand of peanut butter and coconut milk, you may need to add up to 2 tablespoons of water.)
  2. Transfer to a bowl. The sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to five days.
