Spicy Thai Tomato Dip

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Nang Nak
Cuisine: Thai

This is a refreshing pre-dinner treat that's perfect for dipping with shrimp chips or fresh vegetables like thinly sliced cucumber and carrot. It's just a simple salsa-like concoction made with fresh ripe tomatoes and finely chopped basil, in a light dressing of lime, rice vinegar and nam pla.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my Nang Nak film review.
