    No adjustment needed. Absolutely, the best homemade Thai dressing. The only time I get good Thai salads is when I pay big $$$ at a restaurant. This salad will save me so much money and its restaurant quality, if not better. I like that I can spice up or down. I went up too much, but still the best flavor. Thank you for sharing.

    Using a rotisserie chicken and packed slaw mix this comes together so quick, perfect for a weeknight dinner. We put the chicken slaw in tortilla wraps. Lots of flavor in the sauce and a nice crunch from the honey roasted peanuts! My family loved this!
