  3. Arrange the cabbage, bean sprouts, cucumber, tomatoes, and tempeh in a bowl. Once the potatoes are cooked, chop and add them as well.
  4. Finally, add the green beans to the potato water and blanch for a mere minute. Add them to the salad.
  5. Serve with the Coco-nut-butter Sauce, cilantro, and lime.
