Paleo Thai Peanut Sauce – Whole30, healthy, and with nut-free option !
Have you had the real Thai peanut sauce ? Most of the Thai-inspired version in my opinion is either too sweet or sour. There’s not enough flavor complexity and depth to the sauce.
The real Thai version should be a well balanced of savory, sweet, nutty, and tart flavors. It’s creamy yet burst of flavor in the mouthfeel. Luckily it’s really easy to make a legit version and you can use the sauce for practically anything you like!
The real version uses tamarind fruit to give a lovely tart flavor. Tamarind is a souring agent in Thai cuisine. Most often you’ll find either tamarind in concentrate/paste or in dry block form. You can find tamarind paste at local WholeFoods or online here. You can see how I use them in my Paleo Pad Thai Squash Noodles recipe.
What’s a good substitute for tamarind fruit ?
Use apple cider vinegar to replace tamarind. It will give you an approximate taste and still super yummy!

Check out the recipe below and you’ll see how ridiculously easy it is to make the sauce. Use the dressing/sauce for my Paleo Soy-Free Cold Tofu recipe or any salads or spiralized veggie noodle recipes, either way it’s creamy, nutty buttery, naturally sweet, and absolutely delicious!
