Use of peanut sauce in salads is quite unusual as a dressing. I use veggies handy in my kitchen and toss in the dressing to make a healthy salad... tx for teaching me a different kind of recipe..

The peanut dressing is key and use plenty of it with crushed papad. My 10 year daughter loved it. Throw in any veggies like french beans and brocolli and carrots to make this healthier and colorful.
