This is another Barefoot Contessa recipe I love,but made changes to. Instead of honey,I use brown sugar. I use hot spicy peanut butter and omit the cayenne, I also add a teaspoon of garlic chili sauce. I also add thin slices of cucumber and carrots. I omit the tahini and add 1/2 c regular,creamy peanut butter.
It's delicious!
My sister in law makes it and adds crushed peanuts just before serving. Make it your own,I don't think Ina would mind!
