Really love this recipe, very easy and tasty. Went well with the Oven-baked Thai chicken rice recipe from this website

Love this. Very refreshing, but only used 1 tsp of fish sauce as I find the flavour too strong.

This was excellent, served as part of a picnic and it went down a storm, would definitely do again.

Quite nice - found the fish sauce a bit overpowering though.
