A few weeks ago, we met up with our college friends Recy, Yu, and Mars at the latter’s swanky apartment in the East: dinner, drinks, and amazing company.
Aside from my recent yearning to own a dog (Mars keeps a furry Chow Chow and a spoiled Shih Tzu), one thing I couldn’t shake off from that visit was this awesome Thai Beef Salad her sister whipped up for us. I didn’t take the beef- just the leafy things, of course.
I’d decided weeks ago that if I couldn’t very well handle some pets, then maybe making salad would be the easier project.
Judging from what I saw on their table that night (and a few pictures on the internet, haha), these were the ingredients for my Thai *bleep* Salad:
– Salt & Pepper
– Mixed greens (a variant of lettuces, wild rocket for the most part)
– Coriander (a staple in Thai cooking, I notice)
– Peanuts (another Thai staple)
– Garlic flavoured wrap / flat bread
Not pictured was the awesome Thai- style dipping sauce / salad dressing I made! For that, I mixed:
– light soy sauce
– crushed peanuts
– Balsamic vinegar (from a sachet, there is no shame)
– Red Hot Chilli Peppers, finely chopped
– a bit of Pepper
– a bit of Sugar
How was dinner? Heaven in a wrap, I tell you!
We loved this meal so much, we’re packing lunch for work tomorrow. Oh yeah.
