Make your own peanut sauce and it ups the level I made my own peanut sauce, (peanut butter, rice wine vinegar, lemon juice and liquid aminos, hot sauce or hot peppers and garlic adjust to taste.) When you have this remember that like a spring roll it is so good you forget how many you ate! Pros: quick, easy, delicious, Cons: suggested using jarred sauce, make your own.
