If the dressing feels too thick, thin it with water until you reach your preferred consistency.

To make a spicy Thai peanut dressing, add more red chili flakes to taste.

To make this peanut dressing vegan, substitute agave nectar for honey.

To make a healthy Thai Peanut Dressing, use all-natural peanut butter with no sugar added. You can also reduce the honey or agave nectar.
