The Universal Asinan Sayur Recipe

our asinan sayur. | taken by Sony Xperia Z1 – I made these Asinan Sayur (pickled vegetable salad).

I used my family Asinan Sayur recipe and in the dressing, a thin peanut sauce swirled with palm sugar to offset the salty snap of preserved mustard leaf, carrot, coleslaw and cucumber.

The krupuk mie (Indonesian noodle crackers) comes from a yellow disc made with egg noodles. This asinan sayur is a delicious to serve with afternoon tea. Hmm… it was sooooo yummy!!

Simple and it only has a few ingredients.
