This is a delightful salad! I substituted a red onion for the shallot, and didn't use mint this time. I had Japanese cucumbers, so didn't seed or peel them. I also had very thinly sliced beef, so I just fried it and used it. Two little red Thai chilies were just right for me. So easy, and so very very good. Thank you very much for posting this lovely recipe.

Very, very delicious. Not to complicated to make, other than all the cutting. I will definitely make it again. My wife thought it was better than our favorite Thai restaurant. Very good.

Excellent! I put a bit too much dressing on, but it was wonderful all the same. Will be making again - thanks to you & your mum!!

This is a wonderful recipe. The only change we made was using the lt. brown sugar as we couldn't find palm sugar. I would have never thought to put fresh mint with the other ingredients, but now that I've tried it I can't imagine eating the dish without it. This is going into my file of keepers for summer entertaining. Thanks for the recipe, shimmerchk!

Wonderful! Just like the restaurants! Didn't have cucumbers and mint leaves (which would have been great), so just put in cilantro, onions and mix salad..it was still wonderful and my DH loved it. We have a gas grill, so it didn't give the meat a "charcoal" taste that I love but it was still wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!!!
