Gado Gago is a mega salad that has its roots in Sundanese cooking and has now become the typical street food in Indonesia. Gado Gado means medley or potpourri, which refers to all the different seasonal veggies and ingredients that are used, making it slightly different wherever you go and whatever the time of year. Tossed with the most incredible peanut dressing, which to be honest is more of a substantial sauce.
