Thai Vegetable Salad

I have begun to like my salads a lot these days. According to my vegan doctor, a salad should form half your plate for lunch and dinner. Rice or rotis should be a quarter and the remaining should can be cooked vegetables. If salads are playing such a big role in my meals, then they have to be really tasty and filling. So, I search for interesting and wholesome salad recipes. Of course, the Indian salads are easy to replicate since all the ingredients will be available in my kitchen. The international ones need a lot of adaptation. Like this wonderful salad from Thailand. To say that it was tasty is an understatement. A lot of the inspiration came from the iconicTarla Dalal’s website. I really enjoyed it and I have received several requests for the recipe. So, here goes!
