FRESH INSPIRED THAI SALAD

My lovely girl friend, Sally Stark (kiss kiss you darling) she is my frequent companion of getting lost. One day she brought me into this small chic Asian restaurant, one of her favourite place and soon also be mine too. The food they serve are quite authentic into my palette, it is like finding second place as home, as home for me is all about food :D. I love the bravery of the chef on putting ingredient and make some adaption but not losing sense of authenticity that is all I can said.

After our long walk, empty stomach, rainy and cold weather, we need to seek some escape sanctuary and that is bold FOOD. We order quite bunch of food and one of them are Thai salad, which for me it is like love at the first sight, I know I am experiencing Β a lot of love at the first sight haha. It is just like typical Thai dishes, marriage of sweet, spicy, salty, sour and hint of smokiness specifically for this salad.

Then, because I really love the salad, I want to made my own version, and already made it several time, so far was never failed me. The good thing is, I think you could throw any of your favourite ingredient, specifically crispy fresh ingredient, to create texture, flavour and edge. I add some apples in my version and add sesame oil for edge of smokiness, and it is quite hit on. Try, give it a try yourself πŸ˜‰
