Anyone know of a good peanut butter dip for carrots/celery?

I do enjoy peanut butter and love the old celery with peanut butter but I would love to do a dip for veggies. I've tried mixing peanut butter and cottage cheese and although I enjoy as a snack, the cottage cheese overpowers the peanut butter and I would love to do a mainly peanut butter dip. can't imagine sour cream would work or a yogurt, what else could I try?

  1. This is a noodle salad recipe, but the peanut butter dressing makes a great dipping sauce.

      cool, thanks, I've been wanting to make that too. I'm looking more for a thicker dip but I may play with those same ingredients to maybe get there with those flavors.

        Maybe try adding the chicken broth/water a tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want?

      1. I love peanut sauce with celery and carrots (in salad). This is a good shortcut recipe.

        1. I was thinking that with all the fat that peanut butter would combine well with a hot spicy sauce so I went searching and found out that it is a major component to the Thai cuisine. I love little epiphanies, it's a shame the rest of the world already knew about it. I'm a little slow.

          Here are some links.
