    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    From vegetarianrecipesandcooking.com, posted for ZWT 9--"Muang Sing villagers operating the community-based ecotourism trekking business Akha Experience taught The Boat Landing staff this recipe when they trained at the guest house in July 2005. Traditionally, this Akha salad is made with either ginger or sesame seed, but never both. Each version is delicious and great served warm or cold."
