I recently shared my recipe for spicy Thai-style cucumber salad, and received some queries about the sauce that was also in the photo. Here’s the delicious sauce, which is nut-free and can be made very low in sugar by using stevia instead of agave syrup, and sunflower seed butter with no added sugar. It’s reasonably low in sodium because I used just a small amount of the fish sauce (Tiparos brand) and the Thai red curry paste (Thai Kitchen brand). It clocks in at 79 mg per 2 tbsp. I don’t recommend it for migraine, Meniere’s, or low-tyramine diets because of the fermented fish sauce.
