Thai chiles, chopped
1 1/2 pounds
onion, thinly sliced
chopped fresh basil
This is a very pretty dish. The dressing was light yet very flavorful. Truely a wonderful summer dish.
The dish was okay but not spectacular. I was hoping for more zest.
Beware, you must LOVE basil! I was also a little worried about using Fishsauce in a salad, because it is quite strong in smell and taste. But the combination of fishsauce, lime juice and sugar was quite good and I eagerly looked forward to the finished dish. And then I added the fresh Thai Basil which I have growing in my garden. It nearly ruined the whole dish for me because in that quantity it was just too overbearing! I will do this recipe again, but instead of basil, I think I'll add some green onions or maybe just a hint of basil. Oh yeah, be sure your onions are mild as well - mine weren't. I also used quite a bit of fresh cayenne peppers and was surprised that they weren't hot. Maybe the lime juice obscured their "bite".
this was delicious. everyone i have made it for has asked for the recipe. you may be put off by the smell of the fish sauce, but it tastes great in the salad dressing.
Great use for leftover grilled salmon. I used thai basil - which I LOVE, although another reviewer found it to be too strong, and added cucumber, also from the garden - tis the season to try to figure out what to do with an abundance of produce! I did make it a little mild with less chili, and balanced out what to me was too much sour with more brown sugar. Loved by everybody except our 2 year old.
This is such a simple and delicious recipe. We eat it once a week. I prepare the sauce and the salmon the day prior and add it to the mixed greens just prior to serving. For my kids, I just omit the chiles.
I thought this was very good didnt have the basil so ommitted it. Made it nice and spicey with red chiili thai peppers. Made Pad Thai and this salad my man loved both!!!
This was a great use for a large piece of leftover salmon. Very different, and very tasty.
