Article from Wikipedia.                                                                                                                        Karedok is a raw vegetable salad from West JavaIndonesia. It is one of the Sundanese signature dish. It is made from cucumbersbean sproutscabbagelegumesThai basil, and small green eggplant. It is very similar with gado gado, except all the vegetables are raw, and it uses kencur, Thai basil and eggplant for other places karedok also known as Gado-gado (Indonesian and Betawi language) or also called Lotek (Sundanese) for its cooked version - differed from lotek atah or karedok for its fresh and raw version of the vegetable covered with peanut sauce and pecel (Javanese language) is an Indonesian dish comprising a vegetable salad served with a peanut sauce dressing, originally been a Sundanese dish. Karedok is widely served as dailly food in the sundanese family, ussualy added with hot rice, tofu, tempeh and krupuk. nowadays we can found karedok in many variation from hawkers carts, stalls (warung) as well as in restaurants and hotel both in Indonesia and worldwide.


Karedok is part of a wide range of Indonesian dressing & salad combinations, along withlotekpecel and gado-gado. In many places, to retain authenticity in both the production and flavor, the peanut sauce is made in individual batches, in front of the customers. However, since the dish has gained popularity (because of the increase of Asian-themed restaurants) Karedok sauce is now mostly made ahead of time and cooked in bulk, although this is probably more common in Western restaurants rather than in Indonesia. Nowadays in supermarket and stores many peanut seasoning for karedok was made, and sold.
