But once you will start exploring these 5 best Thai salads, you will be shocked because these 5 best Thai salads have completed redefined the term ‘Salad’ as they come up with a few exceptions and a lot of different and unique preparation methods with the immense uses of ingredients:

  1. Yum Ruam Mit Talay

Mixed Seafood salad with tomato, Thai celery, spring onion and lime chilli dressing. This dish has a lot of seafood – perfect for those who like spicy taste of Tom Yum and seafood! With sweet, sour and salty flavor of the soup, sipping hot is so delicious! We recommend eating it with steamed rice or sipping hot is perfect delicious as well.

  1. Yum Woon Sen Goong

Spicy Glass noodle salad with fresh Prawn, minced Chicken, peanuts and lime chilli dressing.

Yum Woon Sen or bean thread noodles salad is a popular dish in both inside and outside Thailand. The combination of ingredients and seasonings make this dish delicious. I love how the bland noodles absorb the hot spicy sour dressing while the peanuts add the nutty, crunchiness to the salad.

  1. Som Tum Goong Sod 

Thai green Papaya salad with Prawn, green beans, carrots, chilli, garlic, peanuts and lime dressing. 

Green papaya salad or Som Tum Goong Sod is a spicy salad made from shredded unripe papaya. Locally known in Laos as tam som or the more specific name tam maak hoong, in Thailand as som tam (Thai: ส้มตำ, pronounced sôm tam), in Vietnam as goi du du, and in Cambodia as bok l’hong.

  1. Yum Tua Phu

Wing bean salad with Prawn, Chicken, Thai chilli paste and cashew nuts.

Wing Bean Salad is a central Thai dish featuring “wing beans” which are blanched and tossed with coconut milk, roasted chili paste, toasted coconut, tamarind, palm sugar and peanuts. If you can’t get wing beans where you are, they can be substituted with green beans or snap peas.

  1. Goong Yang Yum Ma Muang

Grilled Prawn salad with green Mango, coriander leaves and Thai dressing.

Much like its sister dish, papaya salad, green mango salad does not have a lot working against it when it comes to being healthy. Carrots, green mango and fresh lime juice are all added to this dish. If you want to make it even healthier, ask to omit the white or palm sugar. Otherwise, devour this meal guilt free!
