Thai Yum Yum Beef Salad

By Brady Evans

My husband, without fail, orders this salad every single time we go out to eat Thai food.  He craves the coolness of the vegetables combined with the spiciness of the dressing.  We were both skeptical about whether or not this meal could be pulled off at home.  But there was no need to be: this was a fantastic stand in for his usual Thai restaurant fare.

I’m especially glad it was such a success: now he’ll be able to venture out and actually try different dishes at Thai restaurants.

  • I love good Thai food! And I know how it is when you have a favorite dish at a certain restaurant; you feel you have to order it as you cannot tell when you will be able to eat it again… I will definitely be making this at home!
