Salad epal ini lebih kurang kerabu mangga atau som tam. Resipinya sama aje cuma digantikan dengan epal. Biasanya kalau saya buat ayam baakar ataupun nasi ayam, saya akan buat salad  ini. kekacang seperti gajus atau kacangatanah menambahkan kelazatan salad ini...tetapi saya tidak masukkanya sebab ank-anak tidak suka kekacang. Masukkan cili padi kalau inginkan pedas lagi.

Thai Green Apple Salad

1 Granny Smith apple, julienned
1 ginger torch flower, julienned
1 large shallot, sliced lengthwise
1 small handful grape tomatoes, quartered
¼ cup green beans, trimmed and cut into 2 inch lengths
1 tablespoon dried shrimp
¼ cup roasted peanuts
the juice of ½ lime
fish sauce, to taste
sugar, to taste
2 Thai chilies, chopped
¼ cup chopped cilantro

In a mortar and pestle, add the green beans and about 6 grape tomatoes cut in half. To that, add the shallots, chilies, a tablespoon of dried shrimp, and a clove or 2 of garlic. Pound that mixture together until the tomatoes are crushed and the green beans are bruised.

Season your mixture with about a teaspoon each of fish sauce and sugar and continue to lightly mix in the mortar and pestle until the ingredients are combined. Finally, add a ¼ cup of roasted peanuts and crush them coarsely.

If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can do all of this with a ziplock bag and a rolling pin.

Combine the contents of the mortar and pestle with the apple and carrots in a large mixing bowl. Add the shallots, toss everything together and give it a final taste. Balance out the flavours if you have to and finish by adding a handful of fresh chopped cilantro. Traditional som tam is made entirely in the mortar and pestle, but I wanted to preserve the crunchy texture and look of the apples and carrots.
