Gado Gado salad is an Indonesian salad with crispy tempeh and flavorful peanut sauce. It has a perfect balance of freshness and comfort.
The last one of the Summer Salad series - this recipe is an Indonesian-inspired version of Gado Gado salad. "Gado Gado" in Indonesian is literally translated into "mix mix", as it is super versatile and can be made from any combination of veggies. The dish ties together with a signature peanut sauce, which makes any veggies taste good. The stir-fried veggies give a warm and comforting feeling to the dish, making it perfect for enjoying any time of the year.
For this recipe, I use:
- Base protein: Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans and originated in Indonesia. Tempeh has a nutty taste, high fiber and protein content. If you are not a fan of tempeh, you can also substitute it with firm tofu.
- Veggies: for the recipe, I used stir-fried green beans, bell pepper, cucumber, and coriander, but you can use any blanched or stir-fried vegetables or even raw ones.
