Thai Salad For You to Enjoy

Hi everyone,

Delicious Thai Food

Today I have some Thai food for you to try:)

A Thai salad is often one of the spiciest Thai dishes and is frequently ordered as one of the many communal dishes in a meal.  A Thai salad is generally made of raw vegetables mixed with chili, lime, and fish sauce, though some, such as “ยำเนื้อ” Yam Neua (Thai beef salad) contain meat.Thai Food Vocabulary

The most internationally recognized Thai salad, “ส้มตำ” Som Tam (Papaya Salad) is technically a dish of Lao origin, and is most popular in Northeastern Thailand, where it is prepared in a manner that would wreak havoc on the stomach of an unsuspecting visitor unaccustomed to real spicy Thai food. Som Tam consists primarily of shredded papaya and is often served with  “ไก่ย่าง” Gai Yang (Grilled Chicken).

Yummy Thai Salad

“ยำส้มโอ” Yam Som-O (Pomelo Salad), is a more mild salad that is based on the pommels, a fruit similar to, but less sour than, a grapefruit.  Yam som-o is usually served with shredded chicken.
