This is a Thai inspired salad, in reaction to the usual tired Turkey salad that gets doled out on the inbetweeny days. It is fresh, crisp and zesty and the dressing is completely oil free, so you can heap it onto your plate knowing that it’s doing you good. If my family didn’t look forward to Christmas lunch so much, I’d happily eat this instead.
