This Thai salad is really special because of the mix of avacado and ginger. You can use chicken, beef, or pork for this one. I like the pork the best though.

Yummy! This was a super recipe for my leftover barbequed ribs. I also added 1/4 cup of coconut flakes with the peanuts,to good effect. In the dressing I subbed 1/2 teaspoon dried powdered ginger in place of the fresh grated ginger and 1/8 tsp of red cayenne pepper for the pepper flakes.

Colorful & easy to make for a quick lunch. I liked all of the salad toppings, but next time will add seasonings of some kind to the pork. Maybe marinate in the dressing? I wasn't overly awed with the italian dressing, but did like the additions of soy, fresh ginger & red pepper flakes. I will make the salad again. Thank you for sharing the recipe & the inspiration to turn a plain salad into something pretty.

This is a very tasty salad. I was looking for something quick, easy and flavorful and this fits all the criteria. I was skeptical about the Italian salad dressing, but didn't change a thing and it was so good. I will certainly make this salad again. Thanks Chef.
