Strawberry and Chinese Kale Salad (Yam Strawberry, Kha-Na, Koong)


Happy New Year to everyone.  The climate in Thailand is very good for this time.  North the weather is so cool…especially for westerner .  The cool weather in the North makes strawberry crop out a lot, beautiful color, bigger and very fresh.  The holiday season most of Thai people go to the north to taste fresh air and beautiful strawberry.  It very sweet flavor and colorful.  I have made up the colorful menu “Strawberry, kale and shrimp salad” sweet, sour, crispy and a little spicy… drooling…

Very nice recipe, thanks for sharing! I just moved to Thailand and I think that the yam are probably my favorite part of the cuisine...so many possibilities! And I love how even fruit can be used with the sour-sweet-spicy-salty flavors!
