Q: I love spring rolls and other Asian dishes, but I'm allergic to peanuts, which a lot of these dishes contain. I considered making an almond butter dipping sauce for spring rolls, etc., but I don't know if it'd work well. What are some good substitutes for peanuts in these dishes?

Editor: I find that cashews make a very good substitute for peanuts since they're so rich and creamy. Readers, what do you suggest?
