Although called a salad there is no salad involved. This is a version of a traditional Thai chicken mince dish called larb and is nice served in lettuce leaves.
This is an amazingly simple and delicious receipt and I love it. I added lime juice and cashews. - 14 Oct 2012

I would have given this recipe 5 stars but I did have to do some additions of my own. With the extra's I have to admit this dish is going into "my favorete's" recipe book. First, I didn't have any peanut oil or Thai chili's so I used 2 tbsp sesame oil and 3tbsp. of sweet chili sauce instead. As for the garlic it sounded like a bit much so I just used 5 large cloves minced. The additions where 1/2 green pepper sliced, 1/2 red pepper sliced, 1/2 white onion sliced, 2 carrots peeled/ julienned, and 1/2 lime zest/juice which were added before the basil and allowed to cook coverd on med-low heat for about 5-10 mins. Since I did add these extra's I also upped the amount of soy sauce to 3 tsp. and the fish sauce to 3 tbsp. Served with Jasmine rice and garnished with lime wedges and green onion. Sooo good. I think I will stay home for Thai more often. - 01 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
