I can see myself really enjoying this. Im a big fan of peanut sauces in general (which reminds me I havent had any in ages... one more thing for my super 88 shopping list!). What would you suggest this vinagrette on?

For meat, I would recommend using either pork or lamb (although it's actually good as a dip with Andouille Sausage)

For seafood, I like to use Shrimp, Scallops, or Lobster. Fish would be ok, but the sauce goes better with shellfish for some reason.
