Making Yum Salad ( ຍຳສະຫຼັດ; ຍຳຜັກສະຫຼັດ) for dinner in Vientiane, Laos. My aunts used lean pork in the dressing instead of chicken breast. We bought all the vegetables and herbs from the Organic Market held at That Luang esplanade. If you are a big fan of organic produce live in Vientiane, then you can visit the market on Wednesday and Saturday morning from 6:00 AM to noon.
The Yum Salad was delicious and I ate a whole bowl by myself. My relatives ate the salad with steamed jasmine rice and also with sticky rice. When I was a kid and living in Laos I used to eat Yum Salad with sticky rice as well. There was not enough of the salad to go around and eating the Yum Salad with balls of sticky rice in a bowl was a way to feel full.
