                         Mixed Salad Greens
                         Peanut Oil
                         Rice Vinegar
                         Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
                         Thai Fish Sauce -- * see note
                         Brown Sugar
                         Chopped -- fresh cilantro
                         Chopped Fresh Red Thai Chile Pepper -- * see note
                         Green Onions -- sliced thin
                         Peanut Butter
                         Chopped Roasted Peanuts
 Essentially, this is just a peanutty vinagrette dressing that
 I made in the food processor. I added the liquid ingredients
 first, until it looked like the right mix of oil to acidic liquids
 (rice vinegar and lime juice). Then I added the rest of the
 ingredients and processed for a few seconds. From there
 I just went by appearance and taste, adding more liquid or
 peanut butter to get the right consistency, and more of each
 of the other ingredients for other various characteristics--
 sweetness, saltiness, acidity, spiciness. We served the salad
 dressing on the side with the salad, and provided extra chopped
 peanuts, cilantro, and green onions to let people add their own
 to taste.
