Thai vegetable salad

Thai food needs little introduction – its nice, simple, and comforting. Be it a stir-fry, a bowl of soup, or a salad, I love the way simple ingredients come together to create a burst of flavours with an exotic touch. And this beautiful Thai vegetable salad does exactly that, that too with minimum effort – who said salads are boring!!!

You need –

  • Carrots, julienned – 2 cups
  • Cucumber – diced 1.5 cups
  • Bell pepper – 1, thinly sliced
  • Bean sprouts – 2 cups
  • Red onion – 1 small,  thinly sliced
  • Fresh coriander leave – to garnish

For the dressing-

  • Thai bird’s eye chilies – 1 or to taste, minced
  • Garlic – 1 small clove
  • Fish sauce – 2 tablespoons
  • Lime juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Brown sugar – 1 teaspoon
