I don’t particularly enjoy cucumbers. A cucumber is only good in a martini, or when it’s pickled. But now I have one more thing to add to that short list – peanut salad dressing. This recipe has been a long time in the making – I was never able to get it just right, until now. What makes this recipe different? Peanut Butter Boy brand peanut butter of course! PBB peanut butter is thick and rich, so the resulting salad dressing has the perfect consistency. And since we keep the skins on the peanuts, it has more flavor too. It goes great with almost any salad you can imagine, because it’s salty, sweet, spicy and tangy.



1. Whisk together all of the ingredients, except for the water. Then add the water to thin the dressing to desired consistency and mix well. Store in an empty peanut butter jar and refrigerate. Stays good for at least 1 week (maybe longer, but we usually finish it in 5 days or less). Makes 4-6 servings, less if you take too many sips.

    Ooh that looks so good, I love peanut butter dressing, though I never seem to get the consistency quite right – either too gloopy or too runny!

  3. I need to try this! I’ve looked at several recipes this morning for a peanut dressing and this one looks the best.

    This comes out way runny – it just falls through the salad. I’d leave out the water next time, myself.

      Ahh, you know why? Probably because you didn’t use Peanut Butter Boy peanut butter, which is a very thick peanut butter. With most other peanut butter, the water probably isn’t necessary – I’ll update the recipe to reflect this. Thanks for the heads up!

    OMG, amazing! Simply delicious! Just add the hot water to taste, it helps to breakdown the ingredients and create the perfect consistency. Cheers!

    What Peanut Butter can be a substitute if I’m unable to get PBB?

    Hilarious that you post this will last 5-6 days! We eat high raw vegan here. It’s delish and we’ll be lucky if it lasts 2. ;) Thanks for the great recipe!
