Recently I had been experimenting with Thai food again like pad thai, tom yum soup and this very appetising salad which I had it on its own as a light brunch. The aromatic and pungent smell of the ginger was balanced out by the sweet, salty, sour and spicy flavours of the other components in the dressing and really made this salad so much more exciting and uplifting despite its ordinary ingredients. The nutty flavour of the ground peanuts and the aroma from the coriander leaves were very distinct too. I’m so loving it! Bon appetit!
