I love spicy peanut butter sauce, it pretty much makes everything taste delicious (maybe I'm being a bit exaggerating).

I made up this dish with a few fresh veggies that needed to be used up. Then I whipped up this creamy-yummy sauce, sliced up cucumber, carrot, and bok choy, then tossed them all together, and it tasted absolutely amazing.

You can add any vegetables you like, if you like spicy food, add more chili garlic sauce or red pepper flakes if you don't have chili garlic sauce. It's easy, simple and quick.

I had it for supper, so not only a side dish.
