Nam Sod (Pork Salad with Mint, Peanuts and Ginger)

Nam Sod (Pork Salad with Mint, Peanuts and Ginger) created by Sackville

A very refreshing taste experience that paired well with a bottle of Gewurztraminer that I wanted to use up. We use the lettuce to make little bundles of the salad. This recipe is from the book "Thai Cooking Class" by Asia Books.

    Very Good rendition of this classic. Would have gotten 5 stars if lettuce was exchanged for cabbage wedges for serving, substitute lime juice for lemon, and increase liquids by 50% to taste, certainly the lime juice, maybe nam pla by a tsp. I make mine spicier but that is always personal. Needs to specify red chilis

    We enjoyed this but found it very salty. Next time I would cut the fish sauce to 1 tbsp and make sure I use unsalted peanuts. Other than the saltiness, it was a very refreshing and healthy salad that I would make again. I used ground pork.
