Southern Thai-inspired rice salad with pad Thai sauce

During summer vacation in Thailand, my sister and I would visit our relatives at a coastal community in Southern Thailand. Many mornings we would visit the local market to buy fresh fruits and vegetable, and also fish just off the fishing boats. There were also prepared dishes, including one of my favorites – Thai rice salad, or “khao yum,” which is steamed rice served with vegetables and fresh herbs. My favorite was with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, ground toasted coconut, ground dried shrimp, long beans, sour green mango, and pomelo served with a dressing called “nam budu” made from pickled fish mixed with salt.

Here’s a Southern Thai-inspired rice salad recipe that uses pad Thai sauce. You can add your own vegetable or whatever you have on hand to share with your mom!
