Thai Salad with Fried Pigs’ Ears and Sticky Rice

Originally. this was supposed to be an excuse to grill some more Dồi Xá Chiên Tây Hồ sausage and put it in a salad using the dressing from smallwaresFried Kale with Fish Sauce, Mint and Bacon dish. But I was unable to find the sausage. At the same time, I had been wanting to try Fried Pigs’ Ears again, so I just went with them instead of the sausage.

As for what to drink… I went with a bottle of last year’s Special Herbs – brewed with sweet and bitter orange peels, lemongrass, Szechuan peppercorns, hyssop and aged in Gin barrels – from Upright Brewing.
