Please note: Gado-Gad means a mixture. It is a very popular recipe in the entire South Eastern countries and Chinese. You can fluctuate the ingredients but always include a combination of fresh salad and cooked vegetables. Even few Indian vegetables like tomatoes, cabbages, cauliflower, etc., taste superb. But never use any vegetable which has its own I strong odor like radishes either in salad or in the Vegetables. When you use cauliflower, always boil it well to remove its natural odor as far as possible.
