      1/3   c            Water

    1 1/4   ts           Tabasco Pepper Sauce
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1                    Clove Garlic, Cut In Half
    1                    Piece Lemon Zest, About 1
      1/4   c            Vanilla Yogurt
 
   This simple but rather exotic composed salad marries
   crisp fresh vegetables and smooth tofu with a spicy
   peanut dressing for an unusual Indonesian inspired
   taste.
   ~------------------------------------------------------
   ~----------------- Steam the beans, cabbage and
   carrots for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender-crisp, and
   cool.  Arrange the cooked vegetables, cucumber,
   sprouts and tofu on a serving platter.
   
   In a small saucepan, mix the peanut butter, water,
   lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, salt, garlic and lemon
   peel; stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from the
   heat and discard the garlic and lemon zest.  Stir in
   the yogurt. Serve the dressing warm over the salad.
   
   Lagniappe - One-quarter teaspoon of Tabasco sauce
   perks up any salad dressing.  Use more for a spicier
   taste.
