DelectablePlanet's picture
A flavorful variation on this Indonesian salad that works well for lunch or dinner made from cooked potato, cabbage, green beans, shallots along with carrots, sprouts, cucumber and jimica. All mixed together with a spicy peanut sauce.
  Potato 1 Medium, thinly sliced, boiled until soft and cooled
  Cabbage 1 Cup (16 tbs), shredded, steamed, cooled
  Green beans 1 Cup (16 tbs), trimmed, cut into 1 inch length, steamed, cooled
  Shallots 3 Tablespoon, sliced thinly, fried to golden brown
  Safflower oil 1 Teaspoon
  Carrot 1 Medium, shredded
  Sprouts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cucumber 1 Cup (16 tbs), sliced
  Jicama 1 Cup (16 tbs), peeled, cut into strips
  Peanut sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Peanuts 1 Cup (16 tbs), roasted, unsalted
  Molasses 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)

Cook the potato, rinse to cool and set aside. Slice and fry the shallots in a little oil until golden brown and set aside. Steam the cabbage and green beans. Cool and set aside. Prepare the rest of the vegetables.
For the Peanut Sauce:
Place peanuts, molasses and chili powder into a food processor. Turn on and slowly pour in the water. Check the consistency at 1 cup. It should be thick, and pour-able, like gravy. If it is too thick, add water a little at a time
Assemble the salads in this order: potatoes, cabbage, carrots, sprouts, green beans, cucumber, and jicama. Pour 2-4 tablespoons of peanut sauce (or as much as you desire) over each salad and scatter shallots on top. Extra sauce will keep for several days covered in the refrigerator.
