Let the onions sit in the dressing for at least 5 minutes before serving to marinate them and take off their sharp taste. This salad is great because it has details to it but can be done in minutes without having to cook anything!
This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn’t change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
Feel free to substitute oranges for tangerines, or even clementines – just double the amount because they are small!
If you make this salad at home, you will forever be disappointed with salads that you order from restaurants because you will know you can make it better. It is exhausting being amazing isn’t it?
Fish sauce and palm sugar can be found at any Asian market, they have such mouthwatering flavors that you don’t have to worry about not using them again and again!
