Acar

:"This article is about the salad. Acar is also one of the Enochian angels. See Ismail Acar for the painter."

Acar is a type of salad made in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. It is made from different vegetables such as yardlong beans, carrots and cabbage which are pickled in vinegar and dried chillies. The vegetables are then tossed in ground peanuts.

Variants of acar include acar awak or Nonya acar, and Malay acar. Acar awak is more elaborate, containing other vegetables such as eggplants as well as aromatic spices in the pickling mix.

Acar is commonly served as a condiment to be eaten with a main course.

In Indonesia, acar is commonly made from small chunks of cucumber, carrot, shallot and occasionally pineapple, and marinated in a sweet and sour solution of sugar and vinegar. Some households add lemongrass or ginger to spice it up.
