Let’s make this a good week, people. Get your butts in gear and don’t make excuses.
I love today’s preparation because it is the most unbelievably delicious tasting salad in the history of the world. I at it, learned how to make it, and saw several different preparations of it on my recent trip to Thailand and today, I’m sharing my rendition with you!
Another reason I love this salad is because my new best friend in Thailand’s name is Som. Combine this with the fact that Mt. Tam is one of the best mountain biking hills in the world and you’ve got another lovely combination of these words. What? Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but I hope you follow. I tell the story of Som and her husband, Payut in my Thailand Culinary Adventure Recap, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t yet.
Don’t be intimidated by the mortar and pestle that I use. If you do not have one, you can get similar results with a bowl and a couple of spoons. Whatever you do, MAKE THIS SALAD! It is a great representation of Thai food and it’s taste is tough to beat.
Stay tuned for my Tamarind Infused Chicken Satay which pairs well with Som Tam. And, if you’re looking or another option to prove that “You Talk Thai”, check out my recipe for Tom Kha Gai…
“Keep It Paleo!” guys.
