I fell in love with this salad dressing last summer, putting it on everything from Mexican salads to Chinese and everything in between!  I’m not sure if rice wine vinegar fits Nourishing Traditions principles or not.  It does add an Asian flavor, but the dressing is equally good with a good raw apple cider vinegar, like Braggs.

If you process all the ingredients in a Vita Mix, you won’t need to chop the ginger or the chipotle chile.  Alternatively, combine by hand.

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar (or raw apple cider vinegar)

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger

1/2 chipotle chile (see note)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons natural sesame oil

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

salt and black pepper to taste

Note:  Chipotle chilies come in a can and can be found in the Latin American section of most grocery stores.  Once you’ve opened the can, store any leftover chilies in a small container in the freezer to use in small quantities as needed.
