Laab Gai – Spicy Chicken Salad

Larb (or Laab) is a warm salad that can be made with minced chicken, beef, pork or turkey. Though we call it a salad with all of the freshness from lime, mint leaves and coriander, Larb can be eaten with sticky rice or different vegetables such as cabbage. Try this Laab recipe as a side dish for your meal or as the main coarse…simply delicious!
