  • Sesame oil is more authentic than olive oil
  • Spring onion can be used instead of a red onion for a milder onion flavor
  • Carrot can be included into the salad for a sweeter taste.
  • Cooking peanut paste can be used instead of peanut butter



  • Add lime juice from half a lime first then add the rest if needed.
  • Adding more water and/or peanut butter to help bulk out the sauce if you need to cancel out the tanginess of the lime.
