Eating refreshing food is a treat, especially during the summer season. Most of us just turn to eat ice cream and other fatty foods, but there is one way we can enjoy good food in the summer without eating unhealthy stuff. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you Thai cuisine.
Thai cuisine offers a new selection of dishes we can try to quench our thirst and satisfy our appetites during the warm, blazing summer days. Salads are a good choice since it incorporates fresh ingredients and shorter time preparation.
We do not need to spend a lot of money buying complicated spice mixes and dressings to replicate the dishes.
These dishes are very flexible, too. We can serve them as a main dish, a dessert, or an appetizer.
Without further ado, here are five Thai salads to make this summer:
People might be surprised at how pomelo was used here as the main ingredient because it is served as a main course, not as the usual dessert. The surprises do not stop there: this interesting dish captures the right notes of spice, sourness, saltiness, and the natural sweetness of the fruit, allowing us to enjoy pomelo in a totally fantastic way.
The natural juices from the pomelo add a unique punch of flavor to it, making this one a memorable dish for everyone. This dish is easy to prepare. We only have to toss the ingredients into a bowl, mix them well with the dressing, and a deliciously healthy and refreshing dish is ready to be consumed by hungry heads.
This dish is the representative salad dish of Thailand, much like how Americans are associated with Caesar salad. The prime ingredient in this recipe is the green papaya fruit, not to be confused with the ripe yellow papaya fruit.
Believe it or not, green papaya is a known ingredient in many Southeast Asian cuisines, with some people adding it to chicken soup. The crunchiness of green papaya, infused with the blend of spices and sauces in the dressing, makes this one a worthy appetizer for every mealtime.
Surely we have heard of chicken strips added to the usual Caesar salad. But adding beef to a Thai salad dish is something we look forward to trying. The heap of rice noodles mixed with thinly sliced steak, fresh and vibrant vegetables, and the heavenly zesty salad dressing all make this salad dish a total experience.Get recipe
Spring rolls are known all over Southeast Asia, with its Vietnamese version being the more popular one among foodies. This Thai spring roll dish has smoked salmon, cucumber, and rich avocado inside. It is usually served with a zesty lemongrass and mayo dipping sauce that completes the dining experience. These spring rolls are light yet very filling, and these are sure to give you a treat.Get recipe
This last Thai salad dish is a light meal on its own, but it is packed with different flavors and hues. It will make you want more than just one bowl. This dish will only consume 15 minutes of your time. The healthy blend of vermicelli, prawns, fresh vegetables, and the tasty, zesty salad dressing with a kick will take you to the pristine waters of Phuket, the tastes of the sea and the shore all melting in your mouth.Get recipe
