Thanks TenSpeed. Given the large amount of sesame oil, would you say it dominates the dish?

Nope. Peanut butter and the red wine vinegar are more pronounced. Depending upon how much zing you want, the cayenne (or red pepper flakes) carry some weight as well. If little kids are involved, I go easy on the hots (and little kids love this dish).

Have you tried this with rice vinegar?

Never have. I like the vinegar kick (along with the other flavors), and the milder rice vinegar probably wouldn't cut it for me. I use rice vinegar when I want a milder flavor, such as the somewhat sweet herb dressing I make for cole slaw.
