Yield Serves 6 (serving size: 2 1/2 tablespoons)
This dressing is so delicious. We joke that we should serve it as a drink! Besides tasting amazing on Crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad with Wonton Chips, it's also tasty served over grilled chicken or tossed with rice noodles and green onions as a simple side dish.

  • 3 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
