Nine Flavour Salad


Most Thai recipes are easy and quick to make. The exception to this would be Thai desserts which can be quite involved and time consuming.

This recipe also is time consuming and it is a salad, as several steps must be done over a time. This consists of a dressing that combines all four of the basic flavours: salt, hot, sour, and sweet.

The final salad uses nine flavour ingredients, that are matched against each other in three groups. As presented here the first of these groups, let us say the "protein group" consists of a fin, fur and feather, that is to say a fish, poultry and meat selection. This is offset by three "veggies" and three fruits.

You could however choose to use three more closely related flavours in
the protein group: three different sea food flavours, three poultry flavours, or three meats.

The salad dressing calls for two Thai chiles: phrik che fa is a milder Thai chile, about finger sized, that is the Thai equivalent of the Jalapeno. Phrik Kee Nu (birdseye chile) is a fiercely hot little morsel, that can be replaced by Serranos or Habaneros if you find them easier to obtain .

Finally the basic components of the salad dressing: the sweet soy component, the fish sauce component and the chiles in vinegar, can all be used as basic table condiments. Thus, though this recipe is for the quantity needed for this dish, you could easily make more, and use them with other foods.

The dressing:
1 cup phrik nam siyu wan* (chiles in soy sweet sauce)
1 cup pak nam pla* (onions, celery & Chinese white radish in fish sauce)
1 cup Phrik dong* (chiles in vinegar
1 cup peeled, seeded & chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup date palm sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice

* for recipes http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art30618.asp

The salad:
1/3 cup of:
Steamed (or cooked) chicken
Deep-fried catfish
Cooked lean pork
Chinese greens
Bean sprouts
Fresh Mushrooms
Pineapple
Mango
Orange segments

Combine all the ingredients of the dressing and process in a blender until smooth or whisk by hand. If you want a more salsa like consistency, simply omit this step. Place the combined ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer until reduced to your taste. (you need about two cups of dressing). Combine the salad ingredients, add enough dressing to coat thoroughly, and serve.

Additional prepared dressing, prik nam siyu wan, pak nam pla, and the usual Thai table condiments of prik dong, powdered chile and sugar complete the presentation. The dish can be served on its own with sticky rice for lunch, or as part of a multi-course dinner.
