Lao Crispy Rice Salad | Pinoyfoodgawker
This post is available at Pups with Chopsticks. Please visit my blog there to read it all! If you have never had a Lao Crispy Rice Salad, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before and you need to try it because my words just won’t do it any justice. Crunchy, chewy rice with a well balanced tart, salty, spicy and sweet combination of toppings and fresh herbs.   Have you ever had one of those days when you just shouldn’t have got out of bed? Today was that day for me. The day started with taking the dogs out. Being half asleep, I wasn’t even aware it was raining. Not a big deal, you know – unless you’re walking on a sheet of ice.   WHAM! ..goes my kaboose against the icy ground…but that’s no biggy, it’s Canada after all and this is a very normal occurrence and should happen to a Canadian – at least 20 times in their life time right?     Once I get back home,  I’m pumped! I’m making my fave ultimate Laotian comfort food! Nam Khao! As I’m making the sticky rice, I managed to: grab a very hot metal colander with my bare hands throw [...]
