Delicious, quick and easy- my favourite kind of recipe! Served 2 of us as a main course, along with baked soy and chinese 5 spice pork belly slices (definitely wouldn’t stretch to 4 unless you have a couple of other dishes on the go). Will definitely be making this salad again.

I made this last night (minus the fish sauce) and it worked really well. I just balanced up the lime juice and chilli sauce by adding a bit more chilli sauce. I julienned the carrots and sliced the radish really, really thin through a mandolin. It was scrummy though :-) will definately make again and may put some crushed salted peanuts on top next time.

Agree this serves 2, but lovely with griddled chicken with a lime, chilli and coriander marinade

Tried this & agree with below just a two person portion. I chose to grate my carrot & radishes instead. Great with Asian or spicy food, we had it with a wrap.

We have been eating a lot of salads recently (trying to loose a few pounds before hols!) and I was looking for something a bit different. This was fresh-tasting and crunchy - a perfect complement to Thai fish cakes. Followed the recipe and quantities exactly as stated, but it only served two, and not particularly generously either (early-season carrots & radishes on the small side though). It was fine for us for supper (after a pub lunch earlier!) but certainly would only serve 4 as one of a number of salads.
