Sweet, sour and vibrant, this relish is classically served with red curry spiced fried fish cakes or golden chicken satay. Some Thais like to add chopped cilantro. Others prefer a sprinkling of chopped roasted peanuts. This cooling dish is a great stand-alone snack, but is an especially refreshing accompaniment to grilled fish or shrimp. Add carrots, tomatoes, or cabbage to make it a more substantial side salad.
