      Very tasty and authentically thai. I used soy sauce in place of the fish sauce (kosher restriction) which probably affected the overall taste a little, but not much. I served the salad over cold asian noodles and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks Mean.

      Thai food is always a balance of hot, sour sweet and salty. It took 5 teaspoons of sugar to find that balance. I added in tomatoes and carrot and mixed all ingredients together through the dressing. We ate this over cold Aisan noodles and really enjoyed it once I upped that sugar. Heat was a perfect level for us.

      I didn't have to make this recipe to know how good it is. This is the most authentic Yam Nuea that I have come across in a long time. The ingredients are exactly the ones that my Thai Stepmother gave to me.
