When I travelled to Thailand this past winter I had the chance to try this most delicious and refreshing salad. I had never tasted anything like it and I couldn't wait to get home and create this easy to make and nutrient dense salad.
Nam Tok actually means waterfall, the salad can be made with either pork, chicken or beef; which is the traditional meat used. If you have a charcoal bbq I highly recommend using it, there is no comparison in flavour. The fresh herbs and lime juice in this salad give the freshness that you crave on a hot summer day, not to mention the herbs are filled with all sorts of phytochemicals that are good for the body.
