Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette Dressing


This Trader Joe’s spicy peanut vinaigrette salad dressing is an amazing tasting sweet and spicy concoction that is perfect for Asian dishes. This is really good on salads of course, like a Trader Joe’s cruciferous crunch with grilled chicken recipe, but also can be used as a dipping sauce or marinade. I know some people even use this in crock pot recipes since the spicy and sweet vinaigrette is really good at breaking down proteins and infusing a ton of competing flavors to meat or chicken. This is somewhat similar to a classic Thai peanut dressing or chicken satay dipping sauce that you find at a lot of American Thai restaurants………….

Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette at Trader Joe’s


This Trader Joe’s spicy peanut vinaigrette is a cult favorite at Trader Joe’s and seems like it’s one of the longest tenured Trader Joe’s salad dressings. I feel like I’ve been using this for years now, and thankfully it really hasn’t changed much. What is everyone’s favorite recipe or way to use this spicy vinaigrette? Because it tastes so delicious I sometimes don’t get that creative with using it, but I’d love to know if anyone has a go to vegetable they dip in it or a dish they use it to cook with. I’m always on the lookout for really good salad dressings and marinades, so if you have a few go tos at TJs other than this spicy peanut dressing, let me know! Grill up some chicken skewers some night in the summer and dip them in this dressing and you won’t be disappointed. Here are a few other options if you can’t make it to TJs in person…..

    1. Huge disappointment! You have to read the labels very carefully. This is made with soy sauce which is a wheat product and not gluten-free! I would not have suspected.
