Summer Rolls, Part III: Peanut Dipping Sauce

Let’s face it. The very best part of Summer Rolls is the peanut dipping sauce. Mixed with lime and ginger, it has so many layers of flavor, and provides the perfect savory flavor to the fresh crispness of the rolls. Plus, peanut butter just makes everything better!

1/2 onion, diced finely
1/2 inch piece of ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
Juice of 1 lime

In a small pot, heat the canola oil. Add the garlic and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and ginger and sauté until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, lime, and peanut butter. Whisk until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until needed.
