Thai Chicken Larb/Larb Gai


This Thai inspired Chicken Larb or Larb Gai is a sour, spicy, and refreshing meat salad. There are variations of Larb, it can be pork, beef, or duck. This is a perfect dish when you want something quick, light, and yet healthy. The only thing you have to cook is the ground chicken, which takes just a few minutes to cook. Once that is done, just mix in with all the chopped and sliced greens, herbs, sauces, and serve with plenty of crisp lettuce.
