Spicy Thai-Style Peanut Salad Dressing

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup lime juice (from about 3 limes)
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar (or a couple packets of Splenda)
1 teaspoon Sriracha chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend it all up, and use it to dress a simple salad of greens, grilled chicken breast, and whatever vegetables you want (carrots, cucumbers, scallions, etc.). This recipe makes 8 servings of salad dressing, assuming you're not too heavy handed with it.
