Author Notes: I love Thai food, so I'm always experimenting with Thai flavors. One day when it was too hot to eat anything but salad, I tossed this together, using stuff I found in my fridge (hence the addition of Peppadews). I find lemongrass to be a bit of a pain to work with, so I usually have a tube of Gourmet Garden lemongrass paste in the fridge, which makes things just that much easier.theminx
