Gado Gado salad is an Indonesian specialty. The name of this recipe means "a bit of everything" - it´s a family favourite. I hope you like it too. 


Boil the potatoes, drain and cool slightly. Quarter them and place in a large bowl. Make the Gado Gado sauce (dressing) by simply blending half the coconut milk, with the peanut butter and chili together. Then heat in a saucepan with the remaining coconut milk, bring to the boil then reduce to a nice sauce. Place all the other ingredients into the bowl, toss and pour over the dressing. This dish is normally served with steamed rice and traditionally served on top of a banana leaf.
