Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce
I blanched the vegetables except for the jicama.
To blanch the vegetables, boil some water.
Wash the vegetables and cut it into bite size.
Blanch each vegetable separately and you can use the same boiled water.
Let the vegetable sit in the hot water for about a minute.
Then toss it and set aside.
Do the same to the other vegetables.
Okra might need more than a minute to get it nice and soft.
Ingredients for the spicy peanut sauce:
3 cups nuts ( I am using honey roasted peanuts, pistachio, and mixed nuts)
2 tablespoon sambal mix (hot pepper, onion, garlic, ginger and lemongrass)
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups water
2 tablespoon olive oil to fry the sambal mix.
1 teaspoon salt
In a big pot, heat olive oil.
Add the sambal mix.
Add sweet soy sauce.
Add into the mixture.
Add coconut milk.
Add salt to taste.
To serve, take some vegetables on the plate. Then drizzle some of the peanut sauce on it.
