The Very Best Nam Khao Salads !!!

Nam Khao is a popular dish originating in Thailand. This is a very popular Lao appetizer which comes from Tha Deua, which is a small village port in that country. This is food that can be found in street stalls, restaurants and at potluck dinners.

The main ingredients in most Nam Khao salads are deep fried rice balls, chunks of fermented pork sausage, chopped peanuts, grated coconut, sliced scallions, mint, cilantro, lime juice and fish sauce. Red curry paste, seasoned cooked rice, sugar, salt and grated coconut are included in the traditional Laos recipe.

The word Nam actually means fermented raw pork sausage.

Below are some of my favorite Nam Khao Salads, I hope you try at least one of these recipes.
