This lowfat salad is quick and easy while retaining its authentic Thai flavors.
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Combine the pork and the juice of one lime in a saucepan. Cover with the salted cold water and bring to a simmer until the pork is cooked. Ground pork should take about 3 minutes. Other pork will take longer.
Strain the pork in a colander, pat between two paper towels to remove excess fat. Toss pork with the sliced shallots, mint and cilantro. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
For added flavor, after all ingredients have been mixed, try adding 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts or a tablespoon of peanut butter. But remember, this will increase the fat content of this recipe dramatically!
