Instructions

  1. Soak seaweed in warm water for about 15 minutes or until soft.
  1. Using a spiral vegetable slicer, slice radish, carrot, zucchini, and cucumber into a bowl. Alternatively, you can grate the carrot and daikon, and thinly slice the zucchini and cucumber with a mandoline or a knife.
  1. Drain seaweed. Add seaweed, bell pepper, cilantro, and basil to bowl of sliced veggies.
  1. Warm Gado Gado Sauce and chicken. Top “noodles” with chicken and warm Gado Gado Sauce. If bringing to the office, pack the Gado Gado Sauce separately and keep it at room temperature. Add sauce right before serving.
  1. Garnish with jalapeño, if desired.

Kitchen Note: If you’re worried about the taste of seaweed, don’t fret. You won’t even notice it among the crunchy strips of bell pepper, long strings of cucumber, zucchini, radish, and carrot, and the heavenly Gado Gado Sauce.
