Vietnamese Summer Roll Sauce?

Ok, I know this is heresy, but I really like the sauce they serve with Vietnamese Summer Rolls at Vietnamese restaurants. I've looked for recipes on line and while they are nice, they are not the sauce they serve at restaurants around me (Boston). Of the recipes I've found, some have been loaded with fish sauce others loaded with peanut sauce and hosin, but none of these are what I am used to. The sauce I usually get is translucent, orange in tinge, with little flex (red?), and some crushed peanuts sprinkled on top...it is sweet and a bit tart, and to me matches the summer rolls beautifully. Anyone know what the name of this sauce is and how to make it?
