Vietnamese Peanut Dipping Sauce

This basic hoisin peanut sauce is the perfect dipping sauce for all your favorite fresh spring rolls! I love this sauce because it’s super eazy to make and is made with peanut butter and just a few common Asian pantry condiments. It’s sweet, spicy, salty, and super creamy. If you’re a peanut butter fan, this is the perfect sauce for you! Make it for your next spring roll party!

Check out my Peanut Dipping Sauce Instagram Reel to see how the dipping sauce was prepared.

1/2 cup Hoisin sauce
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (preferably Skippy)
1/2 cup water, more to smooth out sauce
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (optional)
1-2 teaspoons crushed peanuts (optional)
dash of salt

Make Peanut Sauce – Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk until ingredients blended and mixed. Add additional water as needed to smooth out the sauce to the desired consistency.


  • For added texture, use crunchy peanut butter.
  • You’re looking for a gravy-like consistency for the peanut sauce.
  • You can substitute other nut butters for peanut butter if you prefer, but I can’t guarantee it’s going to taste the same.
