Great recipe, but too light on chiles! I'd use 4 or 5 Phrik Kee Nu (Thai chiles). Bison is a much healthier choice-forget the beef! Shanti/Mary-Anne

Just a tip - I can't always find fresh lemongrass in my supermarket, so prefer to use Gourmet Garden lemongrass paste. It's sold in the fresh produce department at Safeway and lots of other supermarkets. The tube has plenty of servings and is already prepared for me, which saves a lot of preparation time. Lasts for 3 months in the fridge and 6 months in the freezer. has a store locator and some other lemongrass recipes.

Wow that seems to be a great Thai Salad to try! Looks very appetizing! I would make it a lil more spicier (agree with Shantihh), may be with more ground pepper and also jalapenoes! :)
