I totally loved this recipe! It's so easy but has an amazing amount of flavor. I loved how the sauce caramelized and coated the meat. Made just as directed & it was perfect for a light meal on our first 100 degree day of the year! :D Thanks for sharing, loof! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes!

Made 'pretty' much as written . . . except, used leftover portion of a tenderloin and romaine lettuce. Also added a bit of a Thai mixture (peppers, cilantor, ginger and lemon grass in a tube). We both loved it! Made for ZWT#6

OK - made a significant variation on this - I used white meat chicken strips as I had that on hand from another recipe I made. Having said that - this salad was delicious. Bold, 'clean' flavours with the Thai flavour my family especially loves. I've had the beef version, so I know what I'm missing, but people, using cooked chicken in this ain't half bad! Thanks for a great recipe.
