gado-gado peanut sauce

Gado-gado is a popular classic cooked mixed vegetables salad in Indonesian cuisine.
It is widely served in the restaurant, hotels even its humble sell by street hawker in Indonesia.
The peanut sauce dressing of gado-gado I consciously bring to the fore as preparing the blanched vegetables for gado-gado is deeply easy, I would say that left over vegetables in the fridge can be used either as gado-gado is a pretty flexible salad

There are many varieties of gado-gado peanut sauce dressing recipes but I have to ignored making the peanuts sauce which is use of ready made peanut butter as my self really adore my mother way of making succulent, wonderfully and drooling peanut sauce for Indonesian gado-gado.
