Gado Gado

Healthy, delicious, crunchy salad. Sticky, tangy, spicy sauce. Easy recipe!

Gado Gado is an Indonesian salad made with steamed and raw veggies, topped with a creamy peanut sauce.



I made this Gado Gado salad for the Keli Paan Cooking Contest, which is hosted on Facebook by Anitha from Keli Paan. It is a Cook-Click-Win contest where contestants cook the same recipe and photograph it. The best photo wins and the winner gets to come up with the next recipe. It’s a simple and fun way to interact with bloggers and non-bloggers alike! Since I won KPCC-5 (which was Sonal‘s recipe for fried rice and tofu salad) I got to set the recipe for KPCC-6.

This salad is suitable for diabetics, salad enthusiasts, and peanut butter maniacs!

Forgive my scrawly handwriting in the recipe above! I was trying something new with the format, so by the time I came to the end of the page I was scribbling a bit! Anyway, now I know I should stick to hand drawn illustrations, and use the computer to type the text from next time!
