Thai Yam Salad

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Alskann

I got this recipe from a coworker. She brings this salad to all the potlucks. Everyone always devours it with raves! Everyone always wants the recipe and she was happy to oblige. Wonderful flavors! She has since moved on and so I am posting it here so I don't lose it. It is written exactly as she provided. I am going to have to look up the red pepper sauce she uses and make it to figure out the amounts. Then I will edit the recipe with more exact directions.

First a warning: If you do not like spicy, look elsewhere. If you are serving small children, look elsewhere. If you are fond of blandness, then definitely look elsewhere! :) This dish is INCREDIBLY spicy. We had tears running down our cheeks, our sinuses were cleared for the next year, and we were guzzling milk. BUT! The adults at my house practically bowed down at my feet after eating this. After one bite, they said it was 5 stars. After 2 they asked when they could have it again. I am not as big a fan of heat, but I couldn't stop eating it, either. Beyond, through, and after the heat, this dish has a lovely balance of flavors which I loved. Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting. Made for ZWT4, but I WILL be making this again!
