1 1/2 cups (about 1 pint) red or yellow cherry tomatoes (washed and halved)
1 pound precooked shrimp (shelled and cut into bite-size pieces)
3/4 cup chopped roasted cashews
Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
1 mango (peeled and coarsely chopped to yield about 1 1/2 cups)

1 clove garlic (coarsely chopped)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon peanut oil

To make the dressing, purée mango, ginger, garlic, vinegar, and sugar in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and slowly whisk in sesame oil and peanut oil. Stir in red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste.
