One of my favourite dishes that I ate while I was in Thailand was a som tam salad. This is a spicy, zingy salad made from green papaya, which is quite hard to get hold of in the UK. Here I've taken the flavours of the dressing and subbed in beansprouts instead of the green papaya, which work surprisingly well to offer the crunch factor. I just used what I had in my fridge for this recipe - but you could also add some green beans and a few cherry tomatoes to get closer to the real deal!
I've paired the salad here with chicken satay, rich with a peanut dipping sauce which is to die for!
My homage to Thailand - hopefully won't be too long until we can go back!
