READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kevin Young

Very simple but delicious Thai salad. Great for a summer dinner or lunch. Slightly modified from a recipe in "Main Course Classics" by Jenni Fleetwood which is a great cookbook.

This was delicious! Shiitake mushroomes are difficult to get here, so I used button mushrooms, but that didn't affect the taste, I suppose. This clearly will be a keeper! Thanks for posting.
