Thai Cucumber and Radish Salad w/ Cilantro and Mint


In India, a chaiwalla delivers tea, a dabbawalla delivers box lunches - and in the cookbook Flavorwalla, Floyd Cardoz delivers flavor!

His trademark is a balance of spice, salt, acid-sour, bitter, sweet and heat as he blends Indian, Asian and European ingredients. 


This salad has lots of crunch and a light dressing - perfect for a fresh summer salad. 


My Paleo Marin Rating: 3 Persimmons*


Ingredients and Directions:

Read a description of the cookbook and the recipe here

(scroll down to recipe for "Romaine-Cucumber Salad with Lime and Thai Chile").

I substituted grape seed oil for the canola (Paleo), and added 1 cup of mint instead of 1/2 cup.

*My Paleo Marin Rating between 1-5 Persimmons
I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
