Recipe: Laotian Bean-and-Tomato Salad

Laotian Bean-and-Tomato Salad
Food and Wine Magazine, Aug 2014, p.47
5 stars

This is a wonderful side dish for an Asian meal.  AMAZING flavor -- love, love, love the sauce.  It's spicy!

Ingredients:  green beans (recipe calls for green and yellow wax beans and haricots verts), canola oil, cherry tomatoes

Sauce Ingredients:  garlic, ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, Thai chiles, light brown sugar, water, Kosher Salt

  • We sauteed the garlic and ginger instead of roasting them.
  • I used just 1 lb of regular green beans (made basically half the recipe).  As a result, we had extra sauce which I used on top of my rice.
  • We had this with white rice and an ad hoc dish of shrimp and tofu.
