Caught cheating

Husband caught me cheating. Watching me put together a salad of kohlrabi and carrots, he asked “Is that Thai?”. I squirmed, hemmed and hawed until I finally answered “No, it’s Vietnamese.”

Not only was that salad Vietnamese, but the chicken we had the other day was Vietnamese too. He forgave me, he likes South East Asian Cuisine.

This salad is especially good with beer. I put more chilies on mine after Husband went across the street and bought us a “caguama” of Sol to share. I think I am becoming addicted to the combination of chile serrano, chopped mint and cilantro.

The more chiles you put in the salad the better the beer tastes. Trust me.

  1. I am answering the anonymous unsigned comment. I deleted it since I have the policy of allowing signed posts but not totally anonymous ones. I have had a non-alcoholic beer here but I don’t remember if it was Sol or Corona. One of our friends brought it over.


  2. Peg, I have bought it in the mercado and at the supermarket. Like all veggies here sometimes it looks good sometimes I can´t imagine the sheer amount of gall necessary to offer it for sale. I have seen strawberries covered in mold, yucca with rotten spots etc. You just have cruise the aisles and buy what looks decent.


  3. This looks like a delicious recipe… But where do you find the kolrabi? I saw some in one of the local supermarkets(cant remember which one) and it looked NASTY!

  4. Contessa, if Thai isn’t spicy enough for you, what is? LOL. With all the heat lately Southeast Asian food has been perfect. I don’t cook Yucatecan food much since I can buy it so easily. Today we’re having grilled veggies.


  5. I agree to keep up with some of the Thai but now it’s time to spice it up and shake it up;))

  6. Contessa, It’ up tomorrow. I think I will keep up with some of it because it’s easy. I don’t cook daily. I made some interesting things there was a shrimp and cucumber curry. I’ve never cooked a cucumber before!
    It wasn’t bad, but I like them better raw and crisp.


  7. So when exactly is this month of Thai cooking over?

  8. Jackie, me too.

    Merida Mikey, you probably drink better beer.


  9. I’ve never found that chilies were required to make the beer taste good! 🙂

  10. Sounds very good. I love Asian food no matter what its origin.
