Fish sauce important for the saltiness. I used Asian garlic chile paste instead of flakes. You could also add a touch of sesame oil . Liked it so much I will change it up with different leftover proteins for lunch.

mmmmmmm wompa wompa
I made fajita's the night before, and while prepping my peppers I'd set some aside for this salad. I always seem to have more peppers and cilantro than I need. I don't care for cucumbers or shrimp so I omitted them and used tofu. Overall, a quick and tasty lunch salad.
Great salad, fresh and light. I added avocados to mine for even more protein!
YUM!! I've never tried real Thai food so I don't know how close this came to the real thing, but what I made was delicious! A few substitutions though: my grocery store didn't have fish sauce so I used hoisin, and I didn't have lime juice like I thought so I used lemon. Not sure how different that made it, but what I just ate for lunch was thai-riffic lol. Will definitely make again!!
