This Southeast Asian concoction is rich and mildly spicy. Stir it into noodle dishes, mix it with rice wine vinegar and peanut oil for a distinctive salad dressing, or use it as a dip for dumplings and summer rolls. Despite its exotic provenance, its peanutty flavor often makes it a hit with kids as well.
