Directions:
Arrange the cucumber and any 3 or more of the fruits in separate heaps on a serving platter.

In a food processor chop fine the peanuts, then blend in the chilies, brown sugar, tamarind, liquid, and banana (if used) to form a paste. It is traditional to serve the sauce and fruit separately. Each diner may then select the fruit and dip it into the thick sauce. The modern method is to toss the fruit and sauce together and serve the salad at room temperature.

(Afiq visited San Diego in October, 2018, YSEALI Professional Fellows Program with the U.S. State Department)
"This dish is one of the most common dishes in Brunei and it's used to serve friends. It is easy to make and also healthy as it has variety of fruits. This version of the fruit salad can be found in other parts of South East Asia as well but our version is usually a bit spicy and sweet at the same time. The key to this recipe is the sauce."
