    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This is the most famous salad the land of Indonesia offers. It has an interesting combo of textures and falvours since it comes both raw and cooked veggies that are served with a spicy peanut sauce. It may be served hot in winter or at room temperature in summer. It makes a perfect light lunch on its own or a full meal when combined with Vegetarian Nasi Goreng (Indonesian fried rice) and other side dishes. I got this recipe from the Food column by Anjali Vellody, Weekend magazine.
