Pork satay w/ lighter peanut dipping sauce

sherry monfils


I had a recipe that I got from a friend many years ago that I just came across. I love these easy to make skewers, but wanted to lighten up the recipe. After fooling around with different ingredients, I think I finally got it where I want it!!
