Crunchy Thai Salada

Crunchy Thai Salad
Resource: Jamie Oliver: “The Naked Chef Takes Off”

Any combination of the following ingredients is great:
sprouts
finely sliced green and red bell peppers
baby spinach
finely sliced and seeded red or green chillies
argula
sliced scallions
peeled, gutted, and sliced cucumbers
finely sliced Chinese or Savoy cabbage
whole sugar snap peas
fresh herbs like mint, basil, and cilantro

Top with Thai Dressing (see below) and sprinkle with some lightly toasted cashews or sesame seeds. If you want to make this more substantial, toss in some cooked and chilled egg noodles.

Thai Dressing
Resource: Jamie Oliver: “The Naked Chef Takes Off”

4 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
a good pinch of brown sugar
1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 clove garlic, finely sliced
1 fresh red chili, seeded and finely sliced
1 large handful of fresh cilantro and basil, chopped

(I usually double for 4 people so there’s plenty for the meal and leftovers.)
