3-Ingredient Peanut Sauce

Don't let the simplicity of this 3-Ingredient Peanut Sauce fool you, because it will knock your socks off! This has all of the peanut-forward flavor we love about a classic peanut sauce without all of the ingredients. Throw is on salads, toss it with chicken and veggies for lettuce wraps, serve with chinese noodles, or simply use as a dip with crudités.
