I usually will prepare salad during hot weather. Because of the humid and sweaty weather in Malaysia always let me lost my appetite to have my meals. So I will ready different type of salad as an appetizer. And this fusion Chinese and Thai salad is one of my favourites. It tastes a little spicy and sour with the hot sauce, and a variety of crunchy vegetables boost up the nutrition and colour of this chicken salad. It is tasty by simply eating or as a side dishes to eat with any noodles or rice. Though It quite suitable to be party food too, such as Asian cuisine themed party would be a great appetizer for friends and family.
Information from the internet, Thai salads often do not have raw vegetables or fruit as their main ingredient. But use minced meat, seafood or noodles instead. Similar to salads in the West, these dishes often have a souring agent, usually lime juice. And feature the addition of fresh herbs and other greens in their preparation. Thai salads are not served as entrées but normally as one of the main dishes in a Thai buffet-style meal. Together with rice (depending on the region this can be glutinous rice or non-glutinous rice). Or the Thai rice noodle called Khanom Chin. Specialised Khao Tom Kui (plain rice congee) restaurants also serve a wide variety of Thai salads of the yam type as side dishes. Many Thai salads, for instance, the famous som tam, are also eaten as a meal or snack on their own.
