I’ll always have a pleasant association with this classic Indonesian salad platter, as it was the first meal I had on my first trip to Paris. Served with plenty of rice, the salad (which always combines raw
and lightly cooked vegetables) made for a filling and memorable meal. Though easy to enough to make as an everyday meal, it’s also festive enough to serve to company or to make as a vegan potluck dish. Here’s my Americanized, but still very tasty, interpretation.

Look for peanut satay sauce in the Asian foods section
of well-stocked supermarkets. You can also substitute Peanut Sauce  for the Coconut-Peanut Dressing. This makes for a lively meal served with a simple rice dish or a soup. See ideas for accompaniments following the recipe.
Serves: 4 to 6
Spread the greens on a large serving platter, then sprinkle the sprouts over them.
Place the green beans, cauliflower, and carrots side by side, without mixing, in a wide skillet with about 1/4 inch depth of water. Cover and steam for 3 to 4 minutes, or until all are tender-crisp. Remove each type of vegetable separately with a slotted spoon, transfer to a colander, and refresh under cool water. Transfer to a small plate Repeat with each vegetable.
Arrange the green beans, cauliflower, and carrots in separate mounds on the greens, leaving room to add the tomatoes and tofu. Arrange those on the greens as well, between the cooked vegetables.
Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small mixing bowl and whisk together until completely combined.
To serve, let everyone scoop the vegetables, tofu, and greens onto individual plates, then pass around the dressing for everyone to use as desired.
For a simple meal, serve with cooked brown rice or quinoa, or choose one of the following to round out the meal:
