Why I Love This Recipe

Selamat makan! In Indonesia gado means vegetable. Gado gado is vegetables.

This is the Americanized version of this national dish, Gado Gado. A great way to get your family to eat more veggies.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Selamat tengah haru! Goede miidag! Good afternoon Sunny,

As far as the sauce for gado gado concerns we use Ketjap Manis Cedang which has only 450 mg of sodium per serving. Since Kathie's tolerance for spicy hot is very minimal I add sambal oelek or sambal badjak at dinner time.

Have a Super Day!

Aloha ke Akua,
Axel & Kathie
