Not too long ago I was at a convention that had the Florida Peanut Federation there. Their booth had home made peanut butter cookies for the taking so, of course, I was paying them a visit.
The woman at the booth was very informative about peanuts. She mentioned how healthy they were - packed with protein, fiber, potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin B6, and magnesium. Aside from having delicious peanut butter cookies, she also had recipes.
The following recipe is a peanut dip for veggies. Never really thought about pairing veggies with peanut butter (except for celery) but this dip has an Asian twist. It can also be used as a dressing. Not sure about you but I like it when something is versatile!
Thai Peanut Dip/Dressing
1/4 c. crunchy peanut butter
2 T. rice wine vinegar
2 T. lime juice (juice of 1 lime)
1 T. peanut oil
1 T. soy sauce
3 T. local honey
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. ground ginger
1 t. salt
2 t. dried cilantro leaves
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Wash and cut up your favorite vegetables to dip in the sauce.
Also good with crackers and chips for a fun treat.
Enjoy the crunchy and nutritious appetizer!
