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... and http://www.kitchenbutterfly...

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...

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

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