This delightful dip is to die for! We might be biased, but one taste of this stupendous sauce and you’ll have yourself going in for more. You can use this sweet and savory sauce over anything you wish. At World of Vegan, we love spooning it over our Rainbow Spring Rolls.
Rich peanut butter, salty soy sauce, and a zesty tang of lime juice create a combination of flavors that will tempt and tingle your taste buds. With a simple mix and whisk, your sauce will be ready in minutes and add an extra heavenly mouthful to your meal.
How to Serve up This Peanut Dipping Sauce
- Rain Over Rice Noodles – Cook up a super quick batch of rice noodles, rinse, and pour your peanut dipping sauce right over. Top with crunchy carrot sticks, sliced scallions, and a few broccoli florets. Add a little spice with crushed red pepper or sriracha hot sauce. Soba noodles would also work well. Perfection!
- Venture Into Veggies – Our scrumptious sauce will turn veggie-despising ‘nays’ into veggie-loving ‘YAYS!’. Cut up some sweet tasting vegetables (such as cucumber, carrot, red pepper, and sugar snap peas) and watch them disappear in moments. A great addition for a hummus platter party, too!
- Terrific on Tofu – This is a terrific topping for our marinated tofu triangles. Even though they have a great garlicky taste on their own, this sauce will step it up a notch.
- Peanuts Prohibited? – Swap out the peanut butter for any nut or seed butter. The flavor will be slightly different, but will still taste delightful.
This vegan peanut dipping sauce is insanely delicious. It’s the most perfect sauce to serve with fresh rainbow spring rolls—but you can also use it in so many other ways! It comes together in moments and is made with familiar ingredients you may already have on hand—no cooking required. Go, go, go!

Storing Your Leftover Peanut Sauce
While I doubt you’ll have any leftover sauce, you might if you make a double batch. Having some extra sauce on the side is definitely a good idea. This delightful dip will last at least a few days in the fridge in a covered container. If it becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of water, mix, and reheat in a saucepan or in the microwave.
