You can find this salad on the menu at a Thai restaurant under the name “Larp” or “Laap”. The only problem I have the restaurant versions is that the chili varies from one week to another and at times the salad is way to hot for this old gal to eat.
Solve the problem. Make your own! It’s quite simple and you have complete control over the heat.
Ideally this recipe calls for lemon grass. If you do not have ready access to lemon grass, use tender leaves from lemon balm. If you have lemon balm, then I know you have plenty as it spread all over the neighborhood.
Now is this absurdly simple? …and wonderfully delicious! Do give it a try. You will be so pleased.
