Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing - This is a big salad. On its own, it is enough for 4 servings. It will serve 6-8 if you’re serving it as part of a larger meal. Serve salad with Thai Green or Red Curry or homemade spring rolls. Store the leftover salad in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Store salad dressing separating for up to 1 week.

Make in Advance - You can make the salad dressing up to 5 days in advance. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. The rest of the salad can be made up to 4 hours in advance for optimal freshness.
