Thai peanut sauce is both a cooking ingredient and a dip. You can spice up any salad, stir fry or noodle bowl with this eclectic sauce.

What Vegetables Can You Dip in Thai Peanut Sauce?

Whether you’re packing a lunch or making a snack tray, you can bring out the natural flavors of several vegetables with a delicious sauce. Thai peanut sauce’s spicy sweetness pairs well with crisp vegetables that you can dunk in this dip.

If you’re looking for a delicious snack, appetizer or side for a meal, here are five of our favorite vegetables to pair with Thai peanut sauce:

  1. Red peppers: Cutting red peppers into quarters and eating them like chips is great with Thai peanut dipping sauce. The thickness of the sauce with the crunch of a bell pepper is a fantastic snack or side for your next get-together.
  2. Broccoli: Thai peanut sauce can add spice to your favorite green vegetable, and broccoli could always use a bit of flavor. If you’re a bigger fan of cauliflower, either veggie will taste just as good.
  3. Cucumbers: Slice a cucumber into spears or chips, and you’ll have an excellent dipping vegetable for peanut sauce. Cucumbers are often featured in Asian cooking because they offer a cool complement to a spicy sauce.
  4. Carrots: Carrots are delicious when combined with thick sauces. These veggies are a staple of any kitchen and last a long time, so you could even pack carrots and peanut dipping sauce for a to-go snack.
  5. Green beans: Green beans are great sauce veggies because they’re already perfect for dipping in sauces. You can enjoy Thai peanut sauce with these legumes as part of a large party spread or a simple side at lunchtime.

Thai peanut dipping sauce makes a vegetable’s flavors shine through a healthy snack or meal. You can experiment using Thai peanut sauce with an entire vegetable tray, so treat yourself and try each one!
