Considered one of the five great cuisines of the world, Thai food is perky, fresh, and delightfully satisfying hot weather food. The tropical climate has influenced the use of bright, light, and fresh ingredients that are perfectly balanced and not too filling.
Intoxicating aromatics and a balance of sweet, spicy, and salty set this vividly colorful summer, served at room temperature, carnivore's dream salad apart. When summer days are long and hot, this is an easy recipe in which the protein may be grilled outdoors (but is equally good made indoors stove top in a heavy Staub skillet). The fresh herbs and cool noodles combine into a refreshing lunch or dinner family-style plate.
