- SALAD -
Thai salads are often signified by words like "yum" or "tum" or "laab". Thai salads usually have raw vegetables and/or herbs mixed with minced meat, seafood, or noodles.
Thai salads, like most Thai dishes, often have a combination of sour, salty, sweet, bitter, and spicy. Many Thai salads, like the famous Som Tum, can be enjoyed as a whole meal often with sticky rice, as a snack or as a side dish to be enjoyed family-style.
