yum moo yang : spicy grilled pork salad

Spicy Grilled Pork Salad : ยำหมูย่าง
Wow… it’s been so long since my last post. I have been kept too busy with life and things after New Year. Every fresh year, we all try to set New Year Resolutions. Mine was to shed 5 more kilos (yep, I want to be a skinny type of person as every time I look at “Vogue”, ”Elle”, or “Harper Bazaar” – everything in there always convinces/ed me that being skinny goes well with every clothes that creates by those talented designers. Shallow eh? Oh well, no one was born perfect… and one thing I am sure being a woman for 34 years is that we all (women) want to be pretty.”

Anyway, back to the recipe, the spicy salad is good for diet. (I try to eat only 1,200 Kilo/Calories per day and by doing that, I need to stop eating lots of meat. Veggies are something that I should eat 4-5 times a week. Recently, I read from a medical book that eating too much of law vegetables is not healthy. So, I avoid eating raw veggies by cooking them only a few times in a week.. and try to eat more of cooked veggies.)
Ok.. Ok.. Enough of babbling find below a recipe of “Spicy Grilled Pork Salad”.
Pork tenderloin or shouder, grilled to perfection (turns pink), then sliced
1 of Onion, thinly sliced
1 Cup of Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1 Cup of Cucumber, sliced
½ Cup of Chinese Celery, cut

Spicy Chilies Dressing
4 of Green Chilies, discard the seed
4 of Red Chilies, discared the seed
4 medium cloves of Garlic, peeled
1 of medium Orange, peeled & discard the seed
½ Cup of Lime Juice
½ Cup of Fish Sauce
2-3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar / or Palm Sugar


In a blender, add everything for the dressing in, blend.
Keep one side (The rest of dressing can be kept in the fridge for a week.)
In a salad bowl, add everything in, toss gently to mix well.
Serve with a cup of dressing on the side.
