This colorful salad neatly blends sweet fruit with vegetables and tops it all off with a peanut and chili sauce that also makes a delicious gravy over rice or Chinese noodles. A traditional recipe would include tamarind juice and bunga kantan, a fleshy pink edible flower.

Directions
  1. Make peanut sauce by mixing first four ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pour chopped nuts and spices into bowl, and add juice and sugar. Then add water slowly until dressing reaches a sauce-like consistency. Set aside.
  2. For the salad, peel and slice fruits and vegetables. Arrange in salad bowl or on individual plates. Drizzle with peanut sauce.
