If you going out in the streets of Jakrta you will find many seller of Gado-gado, usually they open a stall (that the people in Indonesia called it Warung).
Actually Gado-Gado is a little bit like Salad. The food is made mostly of vegetables. Unlike Salad, the dressing of Gado-Gdo is Peanut Sauce which is made by grindding (mengulek) the fried peanuts. the grinded peanut then mix with a little bit of water to make it thick. Actually paenut sauce is used in another Indonesian Cuisine like Satay, Ketoprak, Keredok, Pecel, and many other.
The Vegetables composition for Gado-Gado usually, blanched - shredded, chopped, or sliced green vegetables like cabbae, kang-kung, bean sprouts, young boiled jack fruit, string bean, bitter melon, and corn. Gado-Gado also contain fried tofu, and Tempe, and boiled egg.
