Mennonite Thai

The cookbook Joe got me at the Country Pantry (an Amish bulk food store) has a lot of recipes from around the world. One was a Thai chicken salad, pictured above.

I altered it a little:
1 pound chicken breast meat, grilled and sliced
1 big garden tomato
2 small garden cucumbers (peeled and cored and sliced)
1 cup loose packed cilantro, chopped
1 lime, squeezed
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs fish sauce
1 tsp ginger, grated
1 carrot, shredded
peanuts to garnish

I put mine over boiled somen noodles, but it's tasty as a salad.
The original recipe called for garlic and onions, but this version is still zingy without creating really bad breath :)
