Versions of this salad appear on menus in many Thai restaurants. Very simple to make at home. From California Home Cooking. Nice refreshing summer supper.

This was good, but a bit too hot for us lol. I am very glad that I only put in 3.5 serranos for sure. The actual flavor beyond the heat factor though was very nice, and reminded me a lot of a mojito. Now to get my lips to stop burning.... lol.
