  Categories: Salads, Appetizers, Side dish, Vegetables
       Yield: 6 servings
  
 -----------------------------------SALAD-----------------------------------
     1/2 lb Red potatoes
       2 c  Cauliflower florets
       1 md Carrot, julienned
     1/4 lb Green beans, sliced
       2 c  Green cabbage, shredded
       1 c  Jicama, julienned
 
 ----------------------------------DRESSING----------------------------------
       1 c  Coconut milk
     1/3 c  Crunchy peanut butter
       1 lg Garlic clove, minced
       3 tb Indonesian sweet soy sauce
       3 tb Fresh lemon juice
       1 ea Square inch of lemon zest
       2 tb Brown sugar
       1 ts Crushed hot red pepper
     1/2 ts Salt
       2 tb Water
       2 ea Scallions, thinly sliced
       6 ea Cherry tomatoes
  
   In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes until
   tender, 12 to 20 minutes, depending on size; drain.  When cool enough
   to handle, peel and slice.
   
   In another saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the cauliflower
   until just tender, about 3 minutes.  Remove with a slotted spoon and
   rinse under cold water; drain well.
   
   In the same boiling water, repeat this process with the carrot, then
   the green beans, and finally the cabbage.  (The jicama is not cooked.)
   
   To make the dressing, in a medium saucepan, combine the coconut milk,
   peanut butter, garlic, sweet soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, brown
   sugar, hot pepper, salt and 2 tablespoons of water.  Bring to a boil
   over moderate heat, stirring frequently.  Reduce the heat to
   moderately low and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.  Keep
   warm over very low heat until ready to use.
   
   Arrange the vegetables in layers in a large salad bowl.  Scatter the
   scallions on top.  Garnish with tomatoes.  Pour the warm peanut butter
   sauce over all.  Serve at room temperature.
