    Thai Salad


    ***FIRST LAYER***
  • 6 ounces Baby greens
    ***SECOND LAYER***
  • 1 ounce fresh ginger
  • 1/2 bulb garlic
  • 2 Thai chiles -- minced, up to 8
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 limes -- juice only, up to 2
  • 1 ounce Thai fish sauce
    ***THIRD LAYER***
  • 10 ounces shredded green papaya
  • 20 leaves cilantro
  • 4 sprigs mint leaves
  • 1 ounce fresh ginger -- up to 2
    ***DRESSING***
  • lime juice
  • Thai Fish Sauce
  • unsalted peanuts
  • Saute ginger, garlic and chiles. Add ground beef and brown. Near end of cooking, add lime juice and fish stock. (*) Pork or even turkey would probably work reasonably well Mix together: Shredded green papaya (available at local Chinese markets -- I've successfully substituted shredded carrots when the papaya couldn't be found) (about 10 oz.) Finely chopped fresh cilantro, sparingly! (about 2 sprigs = 20 leaves) Finely chopped fresh mint leaves, 4 sprigs (about 40 leaves) Finely chopped fresh ginger (lots! -- 1-2 oz.?) Dressing: Lime juice & Thai fish sauce, probably in about equal quantities Optional: Thai or Vietnamese red chili paste (Sriracha or similar) Top off with a handful of: Crushed, roasted (nearly burnt) unsalted peanuts Baby greens ("spring greens", mixed lettuce-radiccio-endive- whatever they put in that mixture I see at local supermarkets). About 6 oz.

    I make an elaborate Thai-inspired salad using chiles & cilantro. It goes something like this -- I've never written down the recipe, I usually make it up as I go along, so this is approximate. Preparation involves lots of chopping -- a food processor is a big help. Proportions are all guesses based on not having made this in a couple of months, so be ready to adjust (I always do ;-). >Bela< From the Chile-Heads Recipe Collection http://neptune.netimages.com/~chile/recipes.html
