This is my new favorite peanut sauce, which is a food52 recipe by Cathy Likes Cheese. http://food52.com/recipes/18571-tofu-veggies-and-noodles-with-miso-peanut-sauce It is delicious with tofu, chicken and all sorts of vegetables, and it is very easy to make, relying on mostly pantry ingredients.

An excellent, simple sauce: http://food52.com/recipes/11358-grilled-peanut-tofu -- I've used the sauce for all kinds of food. Another one is from Nina Simonds: http://www.theperfectpantry.com/2008/08/black-vinegar-r.html#more. New Year's Eve we made sushi rolls, and used this for dipping (along with a Korean sauce, and simple soy sauce

My go to peanut sauce is by David Lebovitz as it uses roasted peanuts instead of peanut butter. It really amps up the flavour!

Indonesian peanut sauce for satays and gado-gado (a type of salad) uses ground nuts and kaffir lime leaves. Ming Tsai's recipe looks about right (I haven't tried): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ming-tsai/grilled-lamb-loin-with-kaffir-lime-peanut-sauce-and-gado-gado-salad-recipe/index.html

Emily, I make a pb sauce, with veggies; but also a version with coconut milk (which doubles as a dip for vietnamese rice rolls and other things). See http://food52.com/recipes/11918-peanut-butter-chicken and http://www.kitchenbutterfly.com/2012/11/18/lunch-on-homegrown-nigerian-quails/

Jane Brody has a recipe that I used to make for my kids. It's a very quick go-to recipe and open to all sorts of variations: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1987-03-05/entertainment/8701180624_1_peanut-butter-salted-health-food
