The dressing was a bit too spicy for my taste although I do love my spice.. If we make it again we'll deseed the chili's.

THis salad is stunning - really easy to make nd very refreshing accompaniment to a thai curry. the dressing is delicious as before an apple per person is a bit too much. will definitely make this again and again

I had a Thai evening for 8 and made this salad. Sweet & crunchy with a zing and the crispy just fried shallots on top were yummy. It was the perfect accompaniment to the Thai steamed fish. See the menu below, all recipes are from this website. Now about to print this recipe out for my friend who cant wait to eat it again.

This is an excellent recipe and works really well as an accompaniment to Thai or other Asian dishes. Also really easy to prepare. I would say that you need 1 apple per person, I think the recipe calls for slightly more.
