Recipe tips

  • Pairs well with Thai Beef Salad
  • Chiffonade is a technique used for cutting herbs and leafy vegetables into thin ribbon strips. To chiffonade basil,for instance,stack leaves and roll them into a tube and carefully cut perpendicular to produce fine strips.
  • Julienne is a technique similar to chiffonade,used with sturdier vegetables like carrots,that involves cutting a vegetable into thin strips or small,matchlike pieces.
  • A bias cut means to slice not straight across,but at a diagonal (45-degrees). The cut creates elongated,oval shaped pieces for presentation and enjoyment.
  • PLANNING TO COOK GLUTEN-FREE? Before preparing a recipe always read product labels to ensure each ingredient is gluten-free. Products and ingredients can change.

    So can you take it down to feed two seniors. Love the look and taste but it makes too much.

  • Ruth C.

    My hubby had triple helpings of this. He said it was the best! It made so much that I passed along a huge bowl to our neighbours who were having an outdoor dinner party! I substituted cashews for the peanuts and chives for the green onions. Cant wait to make it again when we have company!
