Indonesian Salad Recipe - Serves 6



Peanut dressing


  1. Wash all the vegetables.
  2. Ideally, with the exception of the eggs and cucumber, all of the salad ingredients should be blanched or boiled in a large pot of boiling water. However, if you are pressed for time you can serve them raw with the exception of the potato, which has to be boiled.
  3. To blanch: plunge the vegetable briefly in the boiling water, then plunge into cold water. This leaves the vegetables nicely crisp and neither too firm or limp. Drain all the vegetables.
  4. Arrange the vegetables on a serving platter, starting on the outside of the platter and work inwards, arranging the vegetables in a colorful pattern.
  5. Top with the chopped eggs.

Peanut dressing

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes, until the peanut butter has melted and the mixture is thickened.
