If any of you have ever ordered spring rolls at an Asian restaurant, you’ve probably had the traditional and beloved peanut sauce, which I love by the way. However, it is LOADED with sugar and who knows what. So, just as I made my own version of spring rolls, which can be found on my website, I made my own version of a peanut sauce. But this one is healthy and peanut-free!
Tahini is a sesame seed paste, similar to other nut betters. Sesame seeds have a lot of really great minerals that most of us wouldn’t get on a regular basis because it’s not all too common to eat sesame seeds. So, this is a great way to incorporate them into your diet!
Tamari is a gluten free soy sauce. If you don’t have a gluten issue or if you can’t find tamari, feel free to use regular soy sauce.
Though I made this to use with spring rolls, it is good on EVERYTHING. Salads, quinoa bowls, wraps, literally everything. It can even be used as a marinade!

2T lime juice
