hi kurt,

I also like this salad. My folks make this salad all the time so I'm guessing they eat almost the same thing in southeast Asia. U know what's also good? Throw in some sauté onion. In a pan, add oil, then throw in some onion, stir until brown then top them off on the salad.


looks like i learned something new today. looks great and will try it out. welcome back


never tried this before but with pork rinds on top, I think I would give it a go :)


Hi Tammy - Mmmmm, anything with onions is a go for me.

Hi Sawyer - Pretty easy, and it tastes pretty good too.

Hi Kat - Pork Rinds....Spoken like a true Kama'aina....


Hey Kirk, that sounds great - refreshing but substantial at the same time. Strangely enough Saveur Magazine had a blurb about Laos in this months issue Anyways, seems like the combination of eggs, cucumber and tomato is classic in every culture!


Hi FH - I noticed the article as I was catching up with my mail.....just haven't had a chance to read it yet. And you're absolutely right about that combination....a classic in any culture.

Ooh, sounds intriguing. Will try! =)


Hi TS - It was really easy to make.


Thanks for the recipe!

I made a version of this last night to use up a bunch of leftover lettuce and chicken. I used a little coconut milk that I had leftover from curry last week. It was pretty good, but I think I made it too thin. Also, my mortar is too small and the dressing ended up being a little grainy.

I just read John Grisham's "A Painted House". One thing that struck me was their usual cucumber and tomato salad for dinner. It made me really hungry thinking about those maters and cukes coming right out of their garden.


Hi Jan - The dressing is fairly thin, but totally watery. I found that by not overcooking the boiled eggs will make the dressing less addition to mashing it into a really good paste. I just wish I could get my hands on good Luang Prabang watercress!

Kirk, glad you and the Missus are back safe and sound. This looks like a tasty salad.

Take care


Hi Jeffrey - Thanks! It's good to be home.
